THE FRIDAY WAR CRY. 



VOL. 1. 



FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23. 1914. 



NUMBER 1. 



At present a Democratic campaign 
is raging worse than the European 
war; we all are acquainted with the 
Democratic Mayor who seems to have 
an excellent chance to win out on one 
of the two tickets he is on — probably 
the meal ticket. The Lewis Club has 
been formed and the officers will do 
all in their power to get him elected, 
both to get in right with the Dean's 
Office and to help out (?) a man who 
has always done his utmost for the 
Democrats. 

LEWIS CLUB SONG. 
To be sung to the tune of ' 'tramp, tramp, tramp. " 

Vote, vote, vote for Teddy Lewis, 

He is looking for a pull. 

Prexy says he's the man 

And he'll do the best he can, 

For he's got an everlasting line of bull. 

(Supply the missing word and win Rexall watch.) 

To Professor of X Y Z — 

" If you want your students to ' hurry up ' 
Don't crab 'em like an old sick pup, 
Don't work 'em so hard that they won't get by, 
Or you'll go straight to when you die" 

Grov^r Cleveland, chief of the fire 
department, when interviewed by one 
of the War Cry's reporters explained, 
"The fire losses this year will be con- 
siderably less than in past years — the 
Chem. Building will burn down only 
over my dead body." Some Body. 

The probable selection of the play 
tor the Dramatic Society will be either 
"Damaged Goods," "The Curse of 
Drink," or else "The Trail of the 
Lonesome Cockroach (to be staged at 
the Hash-house). 

Once more we heard the merry 
laughter of the girls with the ming- 
ling of the light fantastic toe to the 



jubilant notes of music, Saturday in 
yonder barn. Remember in the future 
no tripping, slugging or clinching 
allowed, even if you are dancing the 
modern stuff. This means you Sears. 



LOCAL JOTTINGS. 

Butterick carries himself very well 
behind. 

Spofford wants to know if the Braves 
beat the Boston Nationals. 

Desperate Damon and Mexico Navas 
are mad with one another. 

If the Freshmen want to wrestle let 
them wrestle at one of the Soph's 
arena parties. Ross must get all 
names. 

Lastcar from'Hampat 1 1,05. Now 
that's good news for Jackson and 
Susie Dickinson. 

Zabriskie '13 was recently seen on 
the campus. George Washington 
was also a great man. 

Have you noticed the resemblance 
between our circulating manager, 
Gebby Perry, and the figure in the 
Boston Globe on which is written 
"The largest Circulation in New Eng- 
gland." 

I wonder what M. A. C. will be 

A hundred years from now. 
1 wonder if co-eds will run Old Aggie 

A hundred years from now. 
Thp boys are setting a pace today 
That's turning Prexy's hair gray, 
They're asking for beer to go with hash- 
house rations. 
1 wonder if girls will play foot-ball 

A hundred years from now, 
I wonder if they'll fuss in Draper Hall 

A hundred years from now. 
Will they shock Carrie Nation, 
Cause consternation 

I wonder, and wonder, I wonder how much 
We'll beat both Harvard and Yale 

A hundred years from now. 



Every Knock a Boost/ 



THE FRIDAY WAR CRY. 



PUBUSHED EVERY FRIDAY. 



A. X. Petit, Printer, 31 East Pleasant St. 

It is the aim of the War Cry to 
knock every one in college at some 
time or other. As a compensation a 
paper is given free to each one whose 
name appears in any edition. 



1915. 

Do you realize that you are now 
in the laststage of your college career? 
Think back upon former years — your 
embryo stage when you were noth- 
ing more than green amoeba; fol- 
lowed by the breaking thru from your 
shell and you emerged from your pupa 
stage and cried, "Lo, behold me. I 
thrive on Freshmen." Then after a 
summer's vacation in the White 
Mountains, etc., you returned in the 
full beauty of your manhood, with 

that " I don't give a d expression 

on your faces — for the mighty trium- 
virate: zoo, physics, agronomy, were 
but a shadow of the past to most of 
you. And now you have reached 
full maturity. You are all great and 
exquisite specimens of homo hoboken. 
The Freshmen remove their caps in 
your presence (sometimes) and even 
the faculty cast envious glances at 
you. Wonderful men lead you and 
the rest of the college, such as Gen. 
Mellican, President SuspendersTowne 
and Cheer Leader Leander Farrar, and 
even Herby Cole in spirit. Soon you 
will go out in the world, many to 
become bank presidents, railroad 
magnates, tuxedo agriculturists, and 
some to reach the top rung of the 
ladder of success — town criers. 

Enough, dry your tears and think 
not of it. 



1916. 

Most of you have decided on your 
majors. You know whether you are 
to be future chemists and are to 
analyze such fertilizers as Hash-house 
food, or whether you will become 
aristocratic landscape gardeners and 
beautify East St. by planting fig 
groves along its boulevards, and by 
building peanut-stands and hot-dog 
counters along its thoroughfare. 

You have your proteges to take care 
of, to feed them on raw meat so that 
they will get vicious enough to 
be "sicked on" the Sophomores — 
who believe not in the art of photo- 
graphy as you believed in it in the 
past. You have a wonderful year 
before you~a Junior banquet, a tree 
planting—in which you break a bottle 
of Horlick's malted milk over the 
primary roots and radicles of the tree. 
Think of June when you will wave 
your handkerchief to bid a sad fare- 
well to the Seniors and cry " Hail to 
me, I am Kink! " 



1917. 

Try and control your pseudo-feroc- 
ity for a couple of minutes and listen 
to what the War Cry has to say. 
You have a terrible year to go through 
(you realize this without our rubbing 
it in.) The faculty probably does not 
realize that you have enough to do 
breaking up Freshmen pictures, hold- 
ing parades (take it any way you 
please) and arranging arena parties 
and swimming races. But don't 
neglect your studies. Study very 
hard on your tactics as it is the only 
practical course you are taking. Put 
the physics' book under your pillow- 
case each night and dream of cascara 
sagrada, Boyle's law, etc. Learn 
those zoological terms well and some 
day you can become famous compos- 



Every Blow above the Belt." 



ing a new name for some breakfast 
cereal. Remind the Freshmen what 
they wear a cap for— not as an article 
of clothing, but that they may remem- 
ber something in the presence of 
Seniors. Think of the next two years 
of college. You will probably dedi- 
cate a new dormitory, gymnasium, 
or pavillion to the college some day, 
but whatever you do, don't fail to 
drill your senior year, 

1918. 

Crouch not back nor tremble for 
we are not going to speak harshly. 
You came to us from all parts of the 
country and you have yet much to 
learn and much more to forget. 
Don't fall by the wayside, there will 
be too many companions waiting 
there for you. If you fail to pass col- 
lege life, that's not your fault that's 
the fault of college life. Remember 
that logarithm tables are not bought 
in antique shops but are to be used in 
trig, next semester. Oh, happy hours 
to be! Start now and mind what the 
Soph's tell you, you'll have a chance 
to pass the same line next year, so 
memorize it now. Jump all the 
numerals for coach Dickinson is look- 
ing for high jumpers. If the Sophs 
tell you to clean their rooms remember 
that your own is pretty dirty. Don't 
put your hands in your pockets except 
to pay for the War Cry. 



CREAM OF WHEAT. 

A CEREAL. 

The sight was enough to turn any- 
one's blood blue—even the red color 
on the end of Dicky Rahar's nose 
^ would have lost its crimson glow and 
2! turned as blue as a bottle of Water- 
ed man's ink. Ah, ha, the train was 
,--< approaching at the speed of Tabby on 
~- his model 1864 bicycle. The girl 
rr stood as if glued to the track so great 



was her fear for the train was only a 
mile and a half away. Yes, fair reader, 
she was doomed. She began to think 
of home and of the gum she had left 
only half chewed under the mantle 
piece. Finally the train appeared 
around the bend. Oh, horrors! 

But she was not to meet her doom. 
Far be it from that. It would be too 
early in the story. There came rush- 
ing on the scene a youth—our hero, 
Al Otta Hairlip. He saw the plight 
of the girl and tossing a coin, cried 
out, " Heads, 1 save her now; tails, I 
return to the town and cry for help." 
The coin came down heads. 

Al Otta ran to the track, he looked 
at the girl. Never before had he seen 
such beauty. Her Creme delMeridor 
complexion, her face more beautiful 
than the basement of North College 
when the janitor has not been on the 
job, her shape slim and tall as 
"Kewpie" Warren, 

After polishing his nails he was 
about to grab the girl and lead her to 
safety, when— oh fates of Kalamazoo, 
he stubbed his tongue which threw 
him off his balance and forced his 
Adam's apple against his cervical ver- 
tebra. They were doomed. He 
looked at her in mutual sympathy 
and murmured " we will die together 
oh sweetest of cauliflower." 

" How dare you address me with- 
out an introduction," she cried in a 
voice as sweet as a bar room fight. 

But the train was close upon them 
they could feel the steam from its 
engine, held their breath, and— no, 
gentle readers, fear not, the catas- 
trophy was prevented for they were 
not on a regular railroad but on the 
B. & M, The train was stopped five 
feet in front of them with a hot-box. 
He grasped her in his arms and

THE FRIDAY WAR CRY. 



VOL. 1. 



FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1914. 



NUMBER 2. 



The War Cry wants to be serious 
for just a few lines anyhow. We 
want to state that we are not trying 
to compete with the Collegian in any 
manner, but our belief is that the 
humorous side of our college life 
should be taken into consideration as 
well as any other side. The Collegian 
gives you the college news; we give 
you three cents worth of fun. 

There's no reason why you shouldn't 
go to the Tufts game. We suggest 
the following: 

1. Abstain from chewing gum and 
bum the makings for one week. 

2. Break into the Amherst Bank. 
You'll get at least enough to carry 
you one way. 

3. Disguise yourself as a peanut 
boy on the train. 

4. Borrow five dollars from the 
Bloke and don't pay it back. 

To an instructor (supply the missing 
word)- 

Your course may be required by some, 

Your course may be good for the deaf and dumb. 

They couldn't hear the line you hand 

Or swear out loud at you Mr, 

Weather forecast for Friday : — Rain 
and windy. How do we know it 
will be rainy and windy? Because 
Pandomonium always reigns in Ec. 
Soc. 7 and there is always a lot of hot 
air blowing around. 

By the way the honor list is smeared 
up over at yonder Dean's oifice, we 
believe that some of the delinquents 
must have taken the War Cry's 
advice on studying Tactics, College 
Life, etc., and neglected the minor 
subjects. 



ON TO TUFTS. 

(Sung to " If That's Your Idea of a Wonderful 
Time Take Me Home.") 

Now that's our idea of a wonderful 

team, 
On to Tufts. On to Tufts. 
We want them to know we are with 

them 
Tho' we fuss at the game with the 

women. 
We'll go to Tufts with a ten dollar 

bill. 
Win and come back with twice as 

much still. 
You can get an idea of our wonderful 

team, 

ON TO TUFTS. 



LOCAL JOTTINGS. 

Our offer of a free paper was ac- 
cepted by all whose names appeared, 
excepting George Washington and 
Tabby. Can anyone locate them for 
us. 

Open-air shower bath. — Follow the 
fire apparatus next Wednesday morn- 
ing. 

War Bulletin: — Plaisted has gone 
to fight for the Slavs. Unofficial. 

Southerland '18 wants to know if 
anyone wants to fight. 

Altho the Tufts trip seems like a 
"tough trip" financially, nevertheless, 
dig down and produce. Whether 
you chew tobacco or juggle anvils, 
remember this--" We're going to beat 
Tufts."

Comments on the War Cry heard 
around the campus and by whom:— 

"The War Cry isn't worth the 
price of three cents. It's outrageous." 
By the guy that would suffocate if it 
cost a nickel to breath fresh air for a 
lifetime. 

" The War Cry should not knock 
the people the way it does." By the 
guy that is continually telling his 
friends what the trouble is with the 
football team and how the college 
should be improved. 

"The War Cry's jokes are rotten." 
By the guy that says " 2} skidoo for 
you," etc. 

"The War Cry is great, don't you 
think 80.^ 1 bet Life will go out of 
existence soon. Everybody ought to 
buy the paper." By the Editors of 
the War Cry. 



ADVICE TO THE LOVELORN. 

Dear Miss Delia Dope. 

1 am a handsome, dashing youth 
of 21 and am deeply in love with a 
Smith girl two years my junior. Last 



week was my dear Mabel's birthday 
and I bought her a present of some of 
that high priced perfume, " Lilac de 
Jardiniere " or something like that (2 
bones for a small bottle) and some of 
the finest silk handkerchiefs. I tied 
them both in a package ready to mail 
to her. Unfortunately, I also had a 
small package of my old socks I was 
sending to the Co-op. By mistake I 
sent the bundles to the wrong ad- 
dresses and mailed a card to Mabel as 
follows: 

" Wlien you wipe your dainty nose with these, 
And breathe this sweet perfumery, 
You can think whate'er you please, 
But I hope 'twill be of me." 

1 didn't find out my mistake until 
the fat girl down at the laundry sent 
me a card of thanks. 

What shall I do ? Waiting to hear 
from you, 

Love in distress, 

Philip McCann.

CREAM OF WHEAT (continued). 

A CEREAL. 

Synopsis to previous chapters. Just like a 
regular serial there's a hero, a heroine and a vilain. 
if you didn't get our first copy it's your own 
fault. 

Chapter II. 

When we left off last time^ our 
hero, AI Lotta Hairlip, had just em- 
braced the girl, on the railroad track. 
She had fainted. She opened her 
eyes and gushed a la Squirt, "My 
Hero," Then she fainted again be- 
cause she saw a reporter from the 
Index coming toward her. The peo- 
ple all rushed from the train as excited 
as a class in English I. With them 
came a physician. You could tell 
that he was a physician because he 
carried a bag that had M. D. printed 
on it and there was a black-jack pro- 
truding from his back pocket. He 
leaned over the poor girl and said 
"Why it's Miss Calculation, the $14.50 
heiress." He took a bottle of Tom 
Collins from his back pocket and 
applied it to her lips. She sipped a 
half pint of it down and murmurred 
" I like you doctor. I hope I never 
get well." He gave her more so as 
to be . sure to restore her. All wept 
as the doctor said, "The poor maiden 
is very ill." She has what is known 
as "Aqua regia of the Livers." The 
only thing that will save her life is 
East St. air which contains a rich com- 
pound known as H2S." 

Nobody knew what to do but leave 
it to Al. Al. thought once in a while 
despite the pain it gave his poor brain. 
He jumped upon a bicycle and rode 
fiercely thru the town. As he reached 
the center of the town someone ran 
out into the middle of the road and 
cried, " Halt, in the name of the law." 
Our hero knew not who the rude fel- 
low might be, and you couldn't blame 



him. But the people of the town 
knew him well, because he was often 
seen lounging against the Amherst 
House. Yes, excited readers, it was 
Melville Graves, Cheese of Police. 

"You have exceeded the speed 
limit," cried the Cheese, "You are 
the most desperate criminal I ever 
had to deal with." "Oh you get 
out you old sardine!" cried our hero, 
" I am not a criminal." Then he got 
so mad he committed the worst sin 
of his life. He did not mean to do it 
but he lost his head and cast a pierc- 
ing glance at the Cheese. 

Melville staggered but regained his 
unstable equilibrium and moving his 
abdomen into shape again, he instantly 
said in an excited tone, "You wait 
here now until I call my officer No. 
889,203, Mr. Slade the constable, and 
the sheriff." 

What was our hero to do. He 
must save Miss Calculation, but what 
is

AN APOLOGY. 

My name as printer of the War Cry being the 
only one, apparently, responsible for the first 
issue, a few words of explanation are necessary 
on my part. 1 do not wish to blame the editors 
for their apparent deception and had 1 been in 
their position I should have preferred to disclaim 
all connection with it and given the credit (?) to 
someone else. Nevertheless, i am willing to 
shoulder the responsibility for its typographical 
appearance. As to its contents, heavens, don't 
accuse me of that. 1 have a business reputation 
to sustain and 1 am not guilty. In passing judge- 
ment take in consideration the fact that 1 was 
willing to pay my good money for this space 
that I might make things right with the readers. 
These are my business principles. I mean to 
furnish the best in Job Printing of all kinds, 
and if anything is not right, I am only too 
glad to make it right at my expense.

SUPERFLUOUS EXPLANATION 

The editors of the War Cry admit 
a lack of literary training. 



Modern Method of Determining 
a Student's Mental Ability 

Drop a sharp-edged axe on the 
patient's head. If it penetrates the 
ivory the case is hopeful.

It just came to light how Bartlett, 
'15, got that black eye which dec- 
orated his face when he came back 
to college this fall. It seems that 
Bart tried the game of golf during 
his leisure hours and one day ac- 
cidentally hit a passing Irishman with 
the golf ball. The Irishman got 
rather sore, so E. R. B. explained to 
him thusly: 

"When I called 'fore' that was a 
sign for you to get out of the way 
because I was going to drive." 

"Oh, is it, is it?" said Pat, "well, 
thin, whin I say 'foive' it's a sign you're 
going to git hit in the oye. Foive!" 



A piece of chin was found on the 
floor of the South Coll. basement.

TUFTS TRIP TIPS 

Nice restaurant down in Somer- 
ville Square. Order a beefsteak and 
you get a piece of dry varnished 
sole leather, sent direct by the 
foundry man disguised as a cook. 



Did you notice how Tufts gained 
thru our line? Just like a dying man 
gains weight. 

That referee had as few friends in 
the Aggie cheering section as a mad 
dog and was as popular as La grippe. 

Westcott, the injured man looked 
awfully sick — kind of pale on end 
runs, however. 

The Tufts center has a heel mark

Synopsis- to previous chapters: Girl on 
track. Saved by hero. Takes sick. Hero 
rides away to get H2S-restoring air from 
East St. Arrested by Cheese of Police. 
Now we're ready to continue. 

CHAPTER III 

You remember how our hero was 
arrested by Melville. Well, they led 
our poor struggling youth away to 
prison. Al knew he was in prison 
because they had a sign on the wall 
of this particular barn with 'prizon' 



"Every Blow Above the Belt*' 



painted on it. Our hero looked about 
him and groaned Hke the last sweet 
strains of "a-men" in chapel. Why 
did he groan? It was because of the 
fact that he saw there was no chance 
to escape for the windows were locked 
and they had a hook on the door. 
(Ref. "Jails and Jail-Birds" by Boyer) 

After a brief conference, the Cheese 
announced the verdict as follows, 
"Al Lotta Hairlip, whereas you have 
broken the laws of Amherst and 
assaulted the great 'I -am' you are 
to be shot at sun-rise." 

"Where is that city?" sobbed the 
youth with a sniff, not knowing that 
sun-rise is the name of a stove 
polish. Then he fainted away like 
a drooping skunk-cabbage. 

The Cheese and his followers left. 
Young Hairlip did not sleep much 
that night. He stayed awake, puri- 
fying his soul by reading the "Police 
Gazette." However, he soon grew 
sleepy, so setting the alarm clock for 
6:22 (sun-rise) so as to be sure to 
awake in time, our hero slept. 

Two things saved Al Lotta the 
next morning. One was that Mel- 
ville, the Cheese, overslept, much to 
his disgust. The other reason was 
that the day was cloudy and the sim 
did not come out. 

Our hero laughed up his sleeve for 
glee. Then he unbolted the door 
and went out into the fresh air as 
free as the odor of the Friday fish 
at the hash-house. The poor youth 
had lost weight from his worry the 
night before, so he crossed the street 
and bought some doughnuts in the 
bakery, both to gain weight and get 
strong. 

Then he hopped upon his faithful 
bicycle and rode at the speed of m 
square over q tim.es E. Z. (Ref. see 



Kimball's Physics.) AI did not know 
the exact location of East St. but as 
usual his luck was with him. He 
hailed a passing youth, long and 
straight, with a tight vest on. Oho! 
It's Andrew Dalrymple, the Revere 
Beach thug. Andrew informed our 
hero of the location of East St.', but 
just then who should

NO. 4 



CREAM OF WHEAT (A Cereal) 

(Concluded) 

Synopsis of previous chapters — 
See Chap. I, II and III. 

CHAPTER IV 

The words "when who should" 
are the last ones in Chap. Ill and 
they are poor words to end up with, 
but we were just going to say "who 
should think the thug would know 
where East St. is." Don't criticise 
the thug however for he don't know 
anyone down that way. 

Well, by this time our hero had 
reached East St. and was already 
on his way back to the B. & M. 
tracks. But how did he get the 
H2S Festoring Air from East St. 
That's the big mystery of the story. 
We will save that until the end. 

Arriving at the tracks our hero 
found Miss Calculation sitting on 
the track weeping. The train was 
nowhere in sight, neither were the 
passengers or the doctor. 

The "airess" smiled beautifully 
until it looked as if there was grave 
danger of her swallowing her ears. 

"But where have the people gone 
who were caring for you, sweet 
caporal," he said. 

"Oh, the brutes left me to die 
here," she spouted. 

"E Pluribus Unum," cursed our 
hero, under his breath in Spanish. 
Aloud — "and the doctor?" 

"Speak not of him," she gulped, 
nearly choking with the quid of 
tobacco she was chewing. "He wanted 
me to pay a bill of $2 and because 
I had no money with me he knocked 
out my gold tooth with a hammer 
to keep as a security." 



"Such a man as that should be 
reported to the Society for Prevention 
of Cruelty to Animals," expostulated 
Al with the grim ferocity of our old 
friend Wattles during a checker 
game. 

The girl removed her rat and hand- 
ing it to our hero said, "You are 
'muh' only friend — take this to re- 
member me by." 

He reached for her hand; never 
before had he held such a dainty 
little hand since the time he shook 
hands with Sam Langford. 

"I love you," he sputtered. 

She wiped the fine spray off her 
face, meanwhile blushing vermillion. 

"Oh my gorgonzola cheese," she 
cooed like a pigeon with the mange. 

He stirred uneasily like a table- 
spoon. "Marry me," he cried madly, 
deceived by her glass diamond ear- 
ring. 

The girl fainted again. She prob- 
ably wanted Tom Collins again, 
but our hero had only enough left 
for himself. The sight of the poor 
girl took his breath away. He 
swallowed some XXX and his breath 
returned quickly and strong. He 
bit her ear to see if she still lived. 

"Ah, ah," he cried, curling up his 
hair lip, "The East St. air will cure 
her. 

You have probably forgotten the 
East St. air in the excitement of the 
love scene. 

Our hero let the air out of his 
bicycle. He had pumped his bicycle 
tire up when he got to East St. after 
he had let the other air out. The 
girl began to wiggle spontaneously — 
a true sign she was coming back to 
life.

"Every Blow Above the Belt" 



LAST NIGHT 

By Ownie Gaygan Alias — and a 
couple more dashes 

Last night as I lay a-sleeping 
I dreamed a dream so fair. 

I dreamt I was at the SPRINGFIELD 
GAME 
And the AGGIE BOYS were there. 

The people were all shouting 

As "Giggie" led them on. 
The "Springfield Horn" was tooting 
(Poetic License) 

As though all breath was gone. 

The ball flew down on the kick-off 
And "Cue-Ball" nailed it quick. 

Ah! who can stop our players? 
None but the very old "Nick." 

Yes, friends, but "Nick" was not 

present 

In this game they play on the run. 

The Springfield Team could only resent 

And the GAME for AGGIE was 

WON. 



The Looloo Bird says: 

An hour's studying in M. A. C. is 
worth 3 hours in 'Hamp. 

Last Saturday morning 'andsome 
'arold 'yde arose from his nocturnal 
(nice word?) slumbers and after 
viewing his countenance in the mirror 
decided that he had better remove 
the 5 days beard that he had been 
carrying about all week. Well, Hyde 
thought that the barb-wire Beard 
might take some nicks out of his 
razor so he went down to see the 
college barber. 

"A shave, please!" says Hyde. 

"Are you sure that those luxuriant 
locks of yours don't need a clipping?" 
said the C. B. running his money- 
grabbers thru Hyde's hair. 

"Oh, no," says Hyde. "I don't 



want a haircut. The same barber 
has cut my hair for the last six years." 
The C. B. tipped the chair and when 
he had adjusted the towel he said 
gently, "Looks as if he had been 
dead quite a while." 



SPOTS OF ALL SOTTS 

Quite a few fellows will have a 
chance to win their M.t.t. this year, 
especially the members of the three 
lower classes. M.t.t. stands for 
Mettawampe Trek Team. 

Candidates for the various class 
basketball teams will be called out 
soon. No spiked shoes or tango pumps 
allowed on the floor; brass knuckles 
and nose guards may be v/orn. 
Candidates can get practice shooting 
dumplings in the water pitcher at 
dinner. 

We feel that we must congratulate 
Capt. Lane on his idea of having 
class shooting teams. Everybody 
can afford to buy a set of dice and if 
the teams play back of the barns 
there is very little chance of the law 
getting after them.

NO. 5 



That little amusement (?) that 
Springfield offered us between the 
halves was just like raw petroleum — 
very crude. However, did you notice 
that the cow (supposed to represent 
Aggie) came back when they thought 
it was dead and buried? The echo 
of that death knell which the bugler 
sounded will be heard by the Y. M. 
C. A. College when they visit us in 
hockey and baseball. The incident 
was almost as funny as the game 
that the Training School players put 
up in baseball last spring. 

We saw the same kind of an affair 
performed between the halves of 
a High School game. 



Altho a course of law is not offered 
at college, it seems that a number of 
fellow-students were admitted to the 
bar last Sat. in Springfield. 



Hari-kari Society of Black-handers 
Mr. Chesley, 
Stewed of the M. A. C. Salle de Mange 

Many times in the past have we 
warned thee of thy impending danger 
which threatens thine numbered days 
on earth. For many moons thou 
hast fed the subjects of this com- 
munity with unfit food. Thou hast 
made us what we are to-day, we hope 
thou art satisfied. But we have at 
last met in the secret cavern of the 
earth to mete out thine revenge, 
Rr-r-r-revenge-r-r. We have counted 
the number of our fellow sufferers 
that have perished from thine poison- 
ous foods and we find that there are 
many of these good men that suffered 
the tortures of indigestion due to 
thee. Many of our members have 



grown old in years — white beards 
and deeply incrusted wrinkles de- 
corating their faces — ^which were 
once young and clear as ivory (soap) . 
Many of our brethren suffer of 
broken wrists and sprained backs 
due to the strain of attempting to 
cut thine rubber beef and knotty 
(naughty — either way) frankforts. 
Thine Bovine milk has caused many 
of our unfortunates to suffer from a 
touch of concussion of the brain, 
and in their delirium some even call 
to us to pass the cream, poor souls. 
The only thing we do not reproach 
thee, with the full tempest of our 
mad blood-thirsty cry, is thine butter. 
Before trying to pass a biscuit 
down our oesophageal cavity, we 
have to use thine butter as lubricant 
to oil our throats — ^we wish we had 
axle grease instead. When the above 
mentioned biscuits land into our 
stomachs feet first with that dull 
thud, we recover only with the aid 
of the directions of "the first aid to 
the injured" sign placed at the head 
of each table. Many of us have 
taken our desserts with the aid of 
ether. 

Enough of this nude description 
of our tortures during repast. Now 
we are about to render the verdict 
of our revenge. 

Many wished to leave it to the 
fates of nature and await the time 
when the devil himself will make 
thee eat thine own food and all 
the little demons disguised as Indi- 
gestion will prong thee in thine own 
stomach as if with a thousand 
hat-pins; when the terrible odor 
and sight of thine own victuals will 
be placed before thee and thou wilt

But we have concluded to give

SPOTTS OF ALL SOTTS 

Parlor football practice up in West 
Entry No. College will soon start. 

While the challenges are still hot, 
Old John claims that he is as good at 
picking up as any of the Aggie men 
that hang around the street corners 
evenings. 

The Faculty All American team 
will soon be picked. "Billy" is strong 
in kicking. He certainly can kick. 
"Sid" is good on interference. He 
always could interfere with a good 
mark. "Lefty" is good in an open 
field where there ain't many others 
running. Practice every night in 
Doc. Chamberlain's office. 

"Reg" Hunt claims that there are 
some likely looking candidates out 
for his Pool team. He talked to his 
men last night and gave them some 
good cues. 

Capt. Johnson has his eyes on a 
man that got an offer to pitch on 



the World's Champions Penny Pitch- 
ing Team.

Chap. I. 

The new maid arrived, alighting 
from her limousine and handed 
"Ketchup," her prize winning Tomato 
Terrier, to the butler. Inside the 
home of Lammor Beef, the million- 
aire manufacturer of fish balls, the 
whole family with the exception of 
Mrs. Beef were awaiting the new 
maid. Little four year old Corn Beef 
was gleefully playing with a cabbage. 
Chap. II. 

The maid entered, handing her 
rubber boots to the footman who 
always took care of such things, 
"The new maid, I presume?" said 
Lammor Beef. "Oui, but I do not 
spik zee English verai good, gosh all 
mighty," answered the new maid, 
chucking little Corn Beef under the 
chin with her heavy umbrella to show 
her fondness for children. "Are you a 
good worker?" asked the cautious 
Lammor. "Oui, but I always like 
to take things fairly easy," said the 
maid, eyeing the family jewelry.

NO. 6 



BIG GAME— FACULTY VERSUS 
TOWN TEAM 
The Faculty All-America team 
won the toss and Capt. Martin chose 
to defend the south goal so as to be 
near Hicks' office and the rest of the 
bandages. "Billy" received the kick- 
off and after rolling a cigarette 
ran the ball back (?) 10 yards. On 
the next play Sid Haskell got in 
Lefty Lewie's way because he hap- 
pened to be determining the type of 
soil they were on. The result was 
that Lefty lost 5 yards and time 
had to be taken out while they 
scraped the muck and humus off 
of Sid's nose. Billy Lockwood got 
off a beautiful buttermilk spiral, a 
punt good for 30 yards. On the 
next play Doc. Gordon was put out 
of the game for slamming some one 
with a skate. For the Town Team, 
Labrovitch made 8 yards on a skin 
(?) tackle play. The town team 
got away with a beautiful 40 yard 
run when Old John hid the ball in 
his rag-bag. Melville Graves was 
thinking of the drunk tied up at 
the jail and consequently fumbled 
on the next play, Kenney falling on 
the ball as if he was falling on a 
nickel. Gage, our star quarter-back 
got off a nice forward pass, but the 
team was penalized 15 yards because 
Neal was holding the Dean of the 
Herrick School and trying to recite 
Lamb's Tales to him. Gage, however, 
was there on the next play also, 
scooting thru Kurd's legs like a 
croquet ball thru a wicket. Sprague 
opened up a big hole at right tackle 
by tickling his opponent's face 
with his whiskers, and Lockwood 
made 9 yards. Time was taken out 



because Doc. Peters couldn't find 
his nose guard. Finally it was found 
in old John's bag and play was 
resumed. When the referee wasn't 
looking Labrovitch stole the ball. 
Pa Plumb, the barberous quarter- 
back of the town team clipped off 
35 yards on a hair-raising end run. 
Old John was thrown for a loss 
but picked up some lost ground on the 
next play. 

At this point of the game every one 
started to get excited. Prince com- 
menced some Public Speaking to 
the umpire and even Graham used 
foul language. Labrovitch tried to 
sell Kenney a pressing ticket and 
Doc. Peters started doping out the 
chemical formula for the odor of 
Pa Plumb's Hair Tonic. Kenney 
took Melville Graves' pet watch, 
Big Ben. Not only that but Billy 
was out of the makings so the game 
was called.

The Home Made Maid at Home 

Or Why Policemen leave the 

Service 

(Continued) 
Chap. III. 

The cuckoo clock had run down and 
Stellia Wallet, the new maid, was 
giving it a little bird seed. In the 
adjoining room Lammor Beef called 
for the butler thru his megaphone 
which he always carried hanging to 
his watch chain. The butler entered, 
powdering his nose. "Bring me a 
perfecto and tell the new maid to 
take little Com Beef out for an airing 
and incidentally instruct him in the 
gentle art of self-defence," 

The niillionaire smoked in silence. 
Suddenly a hand touched him slightly 
on the shoulder. An ofhcer stood at 
his gide. "Back to Nature," moaned 
Lammor. "Ah! ah! you do not 
recognize me," cried Necca Wafers 
(for it was indeed the great defective 
himself) removing his disguise by 
taking out his false teeth. "I, 
Necca Wafers, the man who found 
Charlie Moses in the bull rushes, 
am at your service." "Watch the 
maid,'' cried Beef, heaving a sigh of 
relief. "Leave it to me," asserted 
Necca, disguising himself as the 
statue of Apollo. 

Chapter IV. 

The famous defective giggled as 
the maid dusted him with a feather 



duster. It tickled him, you bet. 
Then the maid slipped the family 
gold fish down her stocking, the 
meanwhile the sly Wafers disguising 
himself as an English duke with a 
monocle. Themaid left the house. The 
defective dropped thru the register, 
again changed his disguise to a 
frankfurt and dogged her footsteps. 
Chap. V. 

But the trap was set for him. The 
girl went thru the swinging doors. 
The defective followed and got a 
dreadful shock as he put his foot' 
on the rail, and then, and then — -, 
the bartender told him they did not 
serve minors. "I never worked under 
ground in my life" snarled the 
Necca, as he went on the trail of a 
quart of XXX. But who follows him 
but the German spy, Herr Tonic 
with a loaded dum-dum gun. 
Chap. VI. 

The girl's trail lead him to Matte- 
wan. She entered. He followed 
but a voice cried out "No-body 
Home." 

{To he continued) 



MAJOR STUDIES 

As the Sophomores will spend every 
Wednesday morn. next semester 
trying to become enlightened in the 
tricks and fancies of the different 
majors, we have decided to help out 
the faculty in this regard and thus 
save the sophomores the torture of 
having to listen to the same "line" 
that is passed each year. We have a 
complete set of notes on each major 
taken in short-hand from the speeches 
of past years. 

AGRONOMY 

The major in Agronomy offers 
great openings to the right men. 
(But that's a thing you never know 
until it is over all). The course is 



**Every Blow Above the Belt" 



connected with a concise examination 
of soils and its allied subjects, — 
such as soiled collars, shirts, hands, 
etc. According to the U. S. D. A. 
there are 14 of these distinct soil 
types and 12 of these are often seen 
walking around the college. The 
Best Known soiled type around col- 
lege was found in the 1913 U. S. D. A. 
Survey and was later put into the 
1914 Survey and was called "Rose- 
brook's very Dirty soil." The course 
is very interesting and there are 
numbers of grave-diggers and street- 
cleaners who have risen to a high 
degree of proficiency in the manipu- 
lation of the soil. I want to conclude 
by saying that This is the Best Course 
in College. 



EXTRACT FROM A WAR 
BULLETIN 

Myschztski, Oct. 1914. 

On the dismal and murky night of 
the 13th, twenty grizzled veterans 
convened at their usual rendezvous.' 
Up spoke the chief, the eldest of the 
score, saying, "Has Brouck reported 
yet?" 

No one answered. 

He repeated the question. 

Finally some one in the rear rank 
wheezed, "Watts his first name?" 

Again there was a ghastly silence. 

Ignoring the question, the chief 
continued his elaborate discourse. 
Just then a clatter of hoofs rang out 
on the cool midnight air. The 
horseman dashed into their midst: 
"Waugh has been declared!" he 
cried. 

A frown wrinkled the chief's stormy 
brow. "Peter," he said, "ride to the 
gates of Butter field with all speed, but 
do not hurry . There are many B rooks 
which cross your path; if you can't 
Waid them, maybe Dun can. We 



can't afFoord to lose a chance of 
getting some Green men. See that 
you Lock Wood up before you go 
and after he is secure, may God 
speed you on your way." 

In order to avoid any misunder- 
standing, he repeated his orders to 
Pete's attentive ear. Peter gravely 
saluted, mounted his steed, and as he 
departed these words hung on his 
parched lips, "I Hurd you the first 
time."

THE FRIDAY WAR CRY 



VOL. I 



FRIDAY, DECEMBER 4, 1914 



NO. 7 



THE WAR CRY'S SUGGESTIVE 
FINAL EXAM 

Why not shorten the number of 
exams and save time by giving an 
exam Hke the following: 

Given the 18th Lumbar vertebra 
of a Buttercup, describe the life 
history of one of the poets of the 
Hammerstein Age in such a way as 
to prove that the chemical formula 
of a plate of soup does not in any way 
conflict with the moral ideas amid the 
lower bivalves, neglecting the fact 
that 2x plus mn (Y minus 14z) is a 
factor which Boyle left out of his 
Law of Cosines. 



A number of fellows have asked us 
the meaning of Quid agis age Aggie. 
We do not know what it means. We 
asked Tabby and he did not know. 
We also inquired of a noted Latin 
scholar and he didn't know. There- 
fore, we are going to offer a prize 
of a year's subscription to the WAR 
CRY for the best answer, and a 
free copy for each of next five best 
answers. Hand in answers to any 
member of the board. 



To an instructor of the English Dept. 

We have never seen "it" on you for 
the last few years. 

If you can't do "it" we will shed 
some tears. 

If "it" hurts you, don't do "it." 

If "it" froze that way — nothing 
can help "it." 

Perhaps you don't think "it" is 
worth while. 

But we recommend to you one 
good SMILE.

{Concluded) 
Chap. 6 

Everything was quiet as death 
itself. You could have heard a nine- 
pin drop. Not a sound except for the 
slight dynamiting in the room above. 
Necca Wafers did not know that 
Herr Tonic was following him, but 
he dodged just in time to avoid the 
rifle shot of the villainous spy. 
There was another shot and the great 
defective realized he had shot his 
lunch in the excitement. 
Chap. 7 

After recovering from his attack 
of biliousness, Necca found that the 
girl and Herr Tonic were gone. 
He rushed out into the street. It 
was bitter cold. He thought he 
detected the sound of subdued con- 
versation but it was only the chatter- 
ing of his teeth. The sleuth concluded 
that the maid must have returned 
home for she only had the afternoon 
off. He breathed a sigh of relief but 
it pained him and for the first time he 
realized something was wrong. He 
felt around for his heart and ran into 
some moist blood drops. 

"Ha ha!" cried the ferocious sleuth 
incognito quite to himself but never- 
theless somewhat out loud on the 
other hand, "it is the work of Tonic." 
(See advertisement regarding Spring- 
field beer). Then he cursed, for the 
German spy had got blood all over 
his new shirt and had left the broken 
tip of the knife blade in his heart. 
Necca swallowed a KCN pill and was 
all right again.

The defective entered the house of 
the milHonaire, taking care to step 
over the prostrate body of Stewed 
Beef, the eldest son of Lammor. 
The maid was in the kitchen making 
fish balls. 

"You have the missing fiscis invert- 
ebrate," cried Necca. 

'T have not," exclaimed Stellia, 
"I never had anything worse than the 
measles and red hair!" 

"Where is the gold fish?" demanded 
the irate defective. 

"You can fish me, I don't know," 
sneered the maid. 

Chap. 9 

The famous sleuth ate supper with 
the family. He was very disappointed 
at not being able to trace the family 
gold fish. It would be the first case 
he could not solve. N. Wafers cut 
viciously into the fried fish ball 
and a cry of joy escaped his lips as 
he espied a gold scale and knew 
then that the maid had attempted to 
conceal her crime by using the gold 
fish in the fried fish balls. 
Chap. 10 

Necca ran into the" kitchen to arrest 
the maid. She was in the embrace of 
a policeman, vulgarly spoken of as a 
cop. Then Wafers realized he could 
not touch the girl for she was within 
the law. Grief stricken, he ran into 
the library and consumed a volume 
of Neal's English books and choked 
and — 



Chap. 11 
The family of the noted defective 
was notified. Herr Tonic got Necca 
Wafers' job.

Dear Miss Delia Dope: 

Not long ago I met a very nice 
and pretty girl at a masquerade 
party. After every one had removed 
their masks I asked one of my 
friends to introduce me to her, 
for I knew it was love at first sight 
for both of us. After being intro- 
duced we chatted for a while until 
she asked me why I didn't remove 
my mask now as nearly every one 
else had. I had already removed it 
and I told her so but she thought I 
was fooling. 

When she left that night she said, 
"O would like you to call on me as 
I am dying to see how you look 
without that funny face on, you 
old tease." 

Now, what shall I do. I want to 
call on her very much as I do not 
think I could live unless I could see 
her wonderful features once more. 
My heart is yearning to see her again, 
but what am I to do about the mask 
she thinks I am wearing. 
Awaiting a reply, I am, 

O. Watta Mugg.

'TWAS THE WEEK BEFORE 
CHRISTMAS 

One day Billy asked a soph who v/as 
trying hard to pass. 

To multiply the unknown X by a 
known molecular mass. 

The student's thoughts were of vaca- 
tion — he should have known better. 

For when he wrote X times mass he 
left out the final letter. 

So when Billy saw his paper he began 
to fume and fuss. 

For what the student wrote on the 
paper was only Xmas. 



The heavy artillery bowling team 
of West Entry No. College has been 
picked. The candidates met at Met's 
and strung off a few strings. After 
the firing ceased and Metcalf deter- 
mined the damage to his alleys 
and counted the number of dead pin 
boys, the team was picked. Only a 
few suffered injures, most of them 
injuring their reputations. The fol- 
lowing men were picked — Capt. Whorf 
commonly known as "Clean-Up," 
"King- Pin" Grant whose cross fire 
under hand bowling caused a sensation 
(in his own opinion), "Strike" Masse 
whose speedy ball caused Met to 
put asbestos on the alley for fear 
that the wood would get scorched, 
"Duck" Moore the Beverly Bowling 
team who even caused the nine pins 



to stand up and take notice, and 
"Spare" Rogers who broke the record 
for busting the pins and supplied 
Metcalf with enough kindling to 
last him thru the year. Thru Mgr, 
Patterson the team challenges a team 
from any other entry or either dorm 
for a match. Supply your own 
makings. Uniformed teams preferred. 



WHEN JUDGMENT DAY 
ARRIVES 

Scene — The Golden Gates. 
Old Angel Gabriel on guard. 
Alarums outside the gate, 

A, G. — Who comes there? 

1st applicant — A friend desiring 
admittance. 

A. G. — -Your name and address, 

1st applicant — S. B, Haskell, F, O, 
B. Amherst. 

A. G. — It would be neither feasible 
nor sound practice to let you in. 
Move on and give the rest a chance. 



2nd applicant — May I enter? 

A. G. — Your name? 

2nd applicant — Dr. Cance. 

A. G. — What have you ever done 
to v/arrant admission? 

Doc. Cance — I have statistics over 
a series of years showing — 

A. G. — Pass right in Doc and make 
yourself at home. 



3rd applicant — Ahem, I would like 
to pass thru these gates. 

A. G. — ^Well, who are you? 

3rd applicant — Dr. Clarence Gor- 
don. 

A. G. Nothing stirring. Doc. 
Take the elevator, two doors to the 
right. (Voice from the elevator, 
"Going Down.")

gates with the help of his crutches. 
The Angel Gabriel advanced with out-

that hand down," roared the Bloke. 

A. G. (meekly) — Yes, sir. 

Bloke — Show methe most comfort- 
able place in Heaven. 

A. G. — Yes, sir. Anything else, sir? 

Bloke — Where do you keep your 
cigars? 



Lastly Smith came tripping lightly 
up to the gate saying, "Oh, please 
may I come in, I think it is perfectly 
delightful up here. 



A. G. — Go around to the ladies' 
entrance. 



Just then the whistle blew and old 
Gabriel locked the gates for the night. 



HALL OF SHAME 

Bill Hatfield has been having 
trouble with his eyes. He gets them 
fixed on a certain point and then he 
can't move them. This is particularly 
true when Bill focuses his optics in 
the direction of the girls' tables. 
The doctor prescribed an alarm clock 
to bring him out of his trance. 

Did you know that Fritz Hyde's 
mustache is genuine horse-hair? 

Nobody home but the War Cry, 
and that comes out Friday.

Scouts of Walpole while at home last 
week : "Little boys, save your pennies 
and when you come to college you 
can buy cigarettes for me with them."

THE FRIDAY WAR CRY 



VOL. I 



FRIDAY, JANUARY 8, 1915 



NO. 10 



THE WAR CRY'S SONG 

We're coming, we're coining, 

A brave little band. 
On the right side of temperance, 

We'll sure take our stand. 
We don't use tobacco. 

And we know what we think, 
That those who do use it. 

Most usually drink. 



FORCAST FOR THE YEAR 1915 
January — ^This month will be cold. 
Students will remain in rooms at 
nights, especially toward the latter 
part of month. A select crowd will 
leave college because of the fact 
that they never did like M. A. C. 
anyhow. There will be skating every 
day except on days on which hockey 
games are scheduled, when water 
polo will be in vogue. 



February — A score or more of 
Juniors with a few from other classes 
will don undertakers' suits. These 
suits are worn with the air of being 
used to it. Some of course are used 
to them, such as those who worked 
in fashionable summer hotels. Many 
of the folks at home will receive word 
from their sons that the price of 
renting a seat in Sunday chapel has 
gone up, and that every one in college 
has been taxed $16.13 to help the 
Belgium sufferers, etc. The real 
sufferers will be seen leaving the 
drill-hall at 5 a. m. There will be 
many 8c meals bought at the 
lunch counter. 

We predict that Springfield will 
be beaten in hockey. 

March — This will be the third 
month in the year in every city in 



Massachusetts, including East Lever- 
ett. There will be much scrimmaging 
between the first and second string 
Musical Clubs, so as to get in to shape 
for the Spring trip. The trouble in 
former years has been that the Musical 
team has not been accustomed to 
the strange air currents on other 
stages than the chapel stage. This 
fault will be corrected by having 
the practice held in the tower of 
South followed by a snappy gargle. 

Farmer's week will attract many 
good sailors, club-men, taxi-drivers, 
etc., from various parts. These 
men will be of great use to our 
athletic teams. 

April — Brooks wall have completed 
his course in engineering, for the last 
trip home will have been completed. 
Of course "Pigeon-toe" may try to 
sell the freshmen their tickets for 
banquet season. 

Another tree will make its ap- 
pearance on the campus. It m.ay be 
grafted or it may be budded, but it is 
safe to say that it wont be left 
un-irrigated. 

As there are very few college-days 
in this month, Buell will have less 
days to sleep over the first hour. 

May — Banquet rules will be as 
follows: The two classes will indulge 
in a game of tag. The bounds shall 
be between the Drill-Hall and North 
College. Participants shall not con- 
ceal themselves in any building and 
vociferous yelling, or uncalled-for 
forceful tagging will not be tolerated. 
The Freshman president must not 
wear corduroys and must carry a 
trig book under his arm so as to aid 
the Sophs in identifying him. 

In order to get a larger class of

June — ^See January. Substitute 
word "warm" for "cold" and word

There wont be any skating but there 
will be some slipping on the part of 
some in the finals.

thing to ' 15. It will be the commence- 
ment of job-hunting time. Seniors 
will bury hatchet with '16, and they 
will also bury their sorrow at parting 
with one another at the Senior 
Banquet. 

July — Summer School will help 
to entertain a few who can't get away 
from the old place. '15 still looking 
for jobs. Tarr wins prize for first 
'15 baby. (Maybe). 

August — Curran orders football 
men to start practice. Training 
confined chiefly to Fatimas and early 
hours for retiring (2 a. m. is early 
enough). Some '15 men still looking 



for jobs. Summer school will end and 
many hearts broken. i 

September — College will open this 
month unless the trustees decide to 
open the college year in August 
instead. There will be no Freshman 
Parade. There was none in the fall 
of 1914, so 1917 will see that there 
will be none in 1915. The annual 
"60 man pull" across the pond will 
be held at night so the Freshmen may 
overcome their bashfulness before 
going thru the pond. Some aren't 
used to the encouragement from the 
town girls and hence, attempt to gain 
sympathy or else show their bravery 
by crossing the water. 

Some '15 men will be seen around 
college — still looking for a job. 

October — Cambridge will wake up 
to the fact that there is something 
the matter with the Harvard football 
schedule. "The 'ard matches are 
supposed to come at the end of the 
schedule, you know old chap." 

The old grads (including '15) will 
be there to see ye old Aggie team give 
the Crimson a surprise. 

The Dean's Board will be as in- 
teresting as the list of "missing" 
over in Europe. There will prob- 
ably be some Freshmen and Sopho- 
mores on the list. 

November — A new Ted Lewis 
Club will be formed which will try 
to equal the good work of the former 
officers of the Club. 

Chesley will be as popular as the 
food he hands out. "Tell us what 
you eat and we will tell you what you 
are." 

There will be lots of weather this 
month. Hank will not be present 
but "Tich" will have the calendars 
just the same. 



"Every Blow Above the Belt" 



Springfield will be put away — on 
the new athletic field (?). 

December — Look out for an epi- 
demic of Hydrophobia in North and 
South Dorms, This is characterized 
by the affected persons starting a 
general uprising, things being thrown 
around, doors taken off of the hinges, 
radiators thrown out of the windows, 
windows smashed, et cetera. A 
slight (?) attack of this dreaded 
disease was known to have broken 
out in Dec. 1914, 

Christmas, coming this year on 
the 25th, will probably be spent at 
home. Before leaving, friends will 
shake hands and say : "Merry Christ- 
mas, old top. Will see you on the 
special going back," etc. 



HALL OF SHAME 

We place ourselves at the head of 
this column this week, after thinking 
over the issue we handed out for the 
Xmas number. Some one informed 
us that the cartoons were rotten. 
Well, that's where the funny part came 
in. 

Charlie Huntington got a box of 
Page and Shaw's for Christmas for 
some one else. Eureka, Charles! 

Spaulding, '18, received the iron 
cross for being the fastest knitter 
in South Hingham. 

"Cupid" Warren will never enter 
the ring. Every time he swings the 
floor comes up and hits him. Crutches 
weren't built for fast men, were they 
Harold? 

Resolution No. 801 — "I am thru 
with all forms of tobacco except the 
makings, Fatimas and Sunday night 
cigars. You couldn't tempt me with a 
cubeb." Signed: J. S. Pike, Jr. 



ALUMNI NOTES 

After completing the season with 
the B. A. A, Hockey team, Det 
Jones and Jack Hutch', '14 are going 
into the ice business together, just 
to keep in practice. 

Dick Powers, founder of the Pro- 
hibition Club while in college, is 
trying to get Dicky Rahar to join the 
Salvation Army with him. 

We haven't learned yet whether 
or not Macone, '13, has followed 
Big Sam's example. 

"Doc." Fay, '13, has been missing 
from his home. It is reported he 
got lost while pruning in the forests 
of Monson. 



A SPEECH "BILLY" NEVER 
MAKES 

Now, I have had you remain so 
that I could give you these registra- 
tion cards, not that they are any use 
to me, but I want to have something 
from all of you to remember you by in 
future years. Now you can take your 
time about filling these out. There's 
no hurry, but just please try and have 
them ready for me before the end of the 
year. If you are repeating anything, 
leave it out unless you want to put 
it on the bottom of the card as a 
reminder that you have something 
to repeat. I am always pleased 
with the promptness with which 
you fellows get these cards filled 
out. If any of you have any objec- 
tions to filling out your registration 
card, why just throw it away. That's 
all. Thank you. 



I will be on the Aggie Special Monday night, 
with a complete and new line of College and 
Fraternity Pennants, Banners and Pillows.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 15, 1915 



NO. 11 



ANNOUNCEMENT 



Starting with the first of February, 
1915, competition will start for the 
War Cry board for next year. Many 
fellows have asked us who would run 
the paper after this year and some 
have informed us that they were 
going to be our successors. This 
latter statement was a surprise to 
us because we had already decided 
to run some sort of competition 
for it. Therefore, we wish to announce 
that any one may pass in editorials, 
cartoons, adds of any of the adver- 
tisers on our paper and hand in same 
to box No. 40 North College, addressed 
to War Cry. The best of these writ- 
ings and drawings will go to determine 
the various ofificers for next year 
and in order to avoid any criticism 
as to favoritism, etc. we will publish 
the same with the writer's name. 
Every thing will be on the square 
and any members of the three lower 
classes will be eligible. 



PUT THIS ON YOUR SCHEDULE 
FOR NEXT SEMESTER 



Under the direction of the Elite 
Table Society, consisting of such 
social favorites as the members of 
Messrs. Hall's, MeUcan's, and a few 
other tables, a course entitled "Eti- 



quette of the Dining Room" or "Don't 
throw while the Head Waiter's Look- 
ing," will be offered. This course is 
recommended to those who intend 
to enter society and those who wish 
to study some of the problems 
affecting the advance price of board 
at the Hash-House and the present 
lack of rebate. It deals with self- 
control, the art of dodging, leader- 
ship and target practice. Oppor- 
tunity will be given to make use of 
the latent ability of spilling the soup 
on the table-cloth, gargling, breaking 
soft boiled eggs on the cash register, 
etc. Open to all ; Prerequisite Course 
I in Home Economics and Course 
HI in Feeds and other things I have 
Eaten. Discredit — 3.

'Every Blow Above the Belt" 



THE HALL OF SHAME 



Why is it — 

"Dutch" Schlotterback ordered a 
sweater from Prof. Hicks with the 
following dimensions : Bust, 36 ; Waist 
3-4th the length of his own arm ; nar- 
row sleeves and all wool? 

That Ricker passed out "Flor de 
Punke" cigars? 

Fat Warren don't run for a car? 

A mustache Kid Gere wears? 

What the College Store is "Always 
Open?" 

Your registration card is not yet 
filled out? 



On account of the high cost of 
living caused by the present war, it 
was impossible for the people of 
Greater New York, in those sections 
where the Roister Doisters played 
to throw egg-fruit, soft apples, or 
green roses howsoever much they 
may have wished to have done so. 
Cruel War! 

Two one-act dramas presented on 
the trip. 

"Nobody Home" 



Scene — Stage, before rehearsal in 
Jamaica. 

Principles — Sack Clark and Buck- 
man. 

Clark — Say, Buck, what's to be 
the middle of the stage tonight? 

Hasty exit for Buckman. 

Curtain. 



"Somebody home, but not so 
you'd notice it" 



Scene — Sitting room in a home in 
Paterson, N. J. 

Time — Morning after the night 
before. 

Principals — E. R. Selkregg and a 
maiden lady, his hostess. 

Curtain rises. 

Selkregg twirling his thum.bs non- 
chalantly and dreaming of "Miss 
Cutup" whom he had danced with 
the night before. 

The hostess busily engaged knitting 
and talking to Selkregg like the 
Sphinx does when somebody asks it 
how it is. Ain't it? 

Selkregg (smiling) — Everybody is 
knitting for the Belgians these days. 
Aren't they? 

Maiden Lady — Oh yes, yes, yes, 
to be sure. But I'm knitting for a 
scawf. Really, I am. 

S. (getting the drift, as usual, 
wrong) — Oh so you're knitting for 
the Scotch, well you're the first 
person I've met who was knitting for 
th^- 

M. L. (interrupting) — Oh, ne-o, ne- 
o, I'm knitting for a Scawf. 

S. — Oh, yes, I see, you're knittiDg 
a scarf. 

Congealed water looks, Sphinx 
appears. 

Quick curtain.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 22, 1915 



NO. 12 



AN APOLOGY 

We wish to apologize with much 
regret for the seemingly carelessness 
and disrespect shown by printing the 
name of the late Mr. Pease in our 
last number. At the time that we 
sent our copy to press we did not 
know of the death of this man and 
we did not have time to read the 
proofs. This fact must have been 
understood by most of our readers, 
but there are probably some who did 
not take this into account. 



SUNDAY CHAPEL SPEAKERS 

(For the rest of the year) 
On account of a number of speakers 
. cancelling their engagements to speak 
at Sunday Chapel the following men 
have been obtained in their places: 
Rev. Harry Lauder 
Dr. Jack Johnson 
Rabbi Maranville 
Mr. Harry Thaw 
Prof. Jesse Pomeroy 
Mr. Samuel Langford 
Sir Vernon Castle 



Our noted weather forecaster, R. 
E. McLain, wishes to explain the 
system of determining the weather 
by the flags he raises. 

A white flag means that the weather 
will be fair. By "fair" is meant 
anything from a fairly large sized 
snow storm to a volcanic eruption. 

A white flag with a blue pennant 
above and a black pennant below in 
which the middle flag has a black cross 
in the left hand corner, and the 
lowest flag is turned with the outside 
towards the direction in which the 



wind is blowing, and the flag above 
the others flutters in the wind now 
and then means that there will be 
rainy weather the day after tomorrow, 
unless there should be a slight flurry 
of snow or a day of cloudiness, and the 
temperature in this case will be much 
warmer when the thermometer reads 
higher than when the weather was 
colder in which case the day will be 
cool and rainier, no, rain and coolier, 
that is — rainy and more cool than 
what you could expect when you left 
your raincoat at home and your 
rubbers, etc. 
Simple isn't it? 



The West Entry Bowling Team 
vanquished their opponents the Middle 
Entry and Tower Team of South 
College at Mets by the score of 1213 
to 1 183. The winners are still looking 
for challenges. Moore again starred 
for W. Entry and Melican for the 
losers. 

By the way, "Duke" Wellington 
challenges "Jake" Lewis to a game of 
Hyde and Seek down at the Arena; 
six laps and winner take all. 



Breathes there a girl with hair so red 

Who never to herself has said. 

This is my own — but I wish it wasn't.

He tore off his coat because he has ter 
In order to be able to run away faster.

And the train not far from its out-

But he did not save the child I know

But it was not heroism our hero lacked 
For he bought a Carnegie medal for

He continued to do good the very next

When he saw a robber beat a cop

In the fight the youth did not receive

For he was a "real" not a "reel" hero. 

The youth entered college in the fall,

You should have seen the run he made. 
Well, he did not save the game I know 
For he was a "real" not a "reel" hero.

ADVICE USUALLY GIVEN TO A : 
FRESHMAN BEFORE EXAMS 

Start in early to prepare for your ] 
exams. Stay in nights but give up 

enough nights to pleasure so that j 

you won't get stale. Don't cram the ; 

night before but get everything in ) 

to your noodle at the last minute ; 

and whatever you do, don't prepare ' 

a crib unless it is absolutely necessary | 
in which case don't use it,because that's 
very dishonest. If you decide to use 

a crib, get up something original, ^ 

so that after finals you can tell J 

your friends how clever you were in 1 

fooling them. If you should get i 
caught with it, be sure and tell the 

Prof, that you had no intention of i 

using it — that it is not a crib but a ] 

paper with some notes on it and you j 

had just taken it out of your pocket to i 

see if you had taken it with you by < 

mistake. A Prof, will always believe \ 

a story like that. If you get stuck i 

out, write home and tell the folks that | 

the trustees have advised you to stay ■ 
out of college a year and get a little 

practical knowledge. I

From a Boston Newspaper 

Aggie Win from West Point 7 to 1 

Yesterday the Amherst Aggies de- 
feated the West Point hockey team 
7 to 1 in a game in which the Massa- 
chusetts micn showed themselves supe- 
rior in every department of the game. 
Massachusetts State could score at 
will, but after securing five goals, 
M. A. C. slowed down and was 
content with two more goals, com- 
ing in the latter part of the game. 



The Amherst A. C. showed lots of 
team work and the Army showed a 
lack of practice. Ross started the 
scoring for the "Farmers" and Fernald 
and Johnson added two more in 
very quick order. Archibald, Wool- 
ley and Chisholm did their part in 
the scoring for Amherst. Butterick 
the star goal tender of the Massa- 
chusetts Aggies, did not have much 
to do. Amherst State College seven 
now returns to college after a fairly 
successful series of games in which 
the Maroon and White won two out 
of four games. 

Do you notice that they call us 
everything from Amherst Aggies to 
the "Farmers?" Something for the 
Press and Repair Club. 



There may be some who're glad. 
And there may be some who're sad. 
When Exams loom before them 
Gray and Cold. 

And the glad one always is thus, 
While his marks are over B-|- 
For the things to be have made him 
Feel so Bold. 

But the sad will always worry 
And he always feels sorry 
For the things to be have made him 
Lose his Hold. 

Now Exams will soon be here, 
So let us never fear, 
For the glad in heart shall have the 
Victor's Luck. 

So Grit your teeth and smile. 
Then Exams will be worth while. 
For it only takes a small amount 
Of Pluck. 

So put Sadness out of sight. 
Let gladness win your fight. 
And we wish you all the very 
Best of Luck. 



After Exams come over to 'Hamp and get 
on the outside of a good feed. You don't 
know how good you will feel.

"Quid agis age Aggie." — Tabby. 

It has come to light that a good 
many students (?) at the Mass. 
Agri. College have received condi- 
tions in some of their studies. The 
college exercises were closed for the 
week in order that the regular mid- 
year examinations might be held. 
The regular classes will start with the 
second semester. The professors in 
many instances had to stretch their 
imaginations and do some wide figur- 
ing to make some of the marks 
resemble 60 or better. The com- 
mittee on Agriculture has been visit- 
ing the college to ascertain the needs 
of the college in the coming budget. 



YELLOW JOURNALISM 
Murder on the Campus 
Murderer Still At Large 

Conscious stricken, a member of 
the college confessed to one of the 
worst crimes ever committed. The 



dastardly deed, coldly carried out, in 
broad daylight, was enough to make 
the bravest of strong-nerved people 
collapse or else suffer from frost-bites 
due to the shivers the story would 
send along their spinal columns. 

The murderer gloated over the 
fact that he had killed his victim, 
even laughing over it. Late the night 
before he laid out his plans, and, 
arising early in the morning, prepared 
more fully for the awful deed. He 
went to the scene where the terrible 
murder was to take place, somewhat 
doubtful as to whether his plans 
would work all right. 

Coming from the scene of the crime, 
the culprit felt quite downcast, not 
because he felt in the least bit sorry 
for his sin or any pity for his victim, 
but because he feared he had erred 
and had not accomplished his mis- 
demeanor. 

Yet, he must have been conscious- 
stricken for he was heard to murmur, 
"Yes, it was wrong. Dead wrong. 
Why didn't I think?" 

Meeting a pal of his he said, "I 
am in an awful fix. I dare not to 
tell my mother, but she will know in 
time." 

"What have you done?" inquired 
his pal. 

"Put down 48 for the answer to that 
last question in Physics and I meant 
to put down 84."

"48 was the right answer, you bone." 
Then the murderer gloated, "I have 

killed it then. I hit it right on the 

head." 



Visitor — "Is this the violent ward?" 

Nurse — "Yes sir, these poor fellows 
are from the Agricultural college over 
in Amherst." 

Visitor — "How unfortunate. What 
happened to them? Is there an 
epidemic of rabies over there?" 

Nurse — "I do not know exactly, 
except that they were sent here in 
a truck after they had completed 
their exams." 

Visitor (to first patient) — "Well, 
my good fellow, how are you feeling 
this morning?" 

Patient No. 1 — "Zounds, my lord, 
I feel like a mark of 58 — a little under 
the weather." 

Visitor — "What is your name,

Patient No. 1 — "Ho, ho, I am Sir

It is the internal organs of a tape- 
worm. But, stop.: What more. 
Don't you see I am tracing the 
arterial blood flow of an amoeba from 
the right ear to the second floor 
of the Flat-Iron Building." 

Visitor (to nurse) — "Let us go 
further. Look, two of those inmates 
are fighting with each other." 

Nurse — "Oh, that's nothing. The 
one on the ground keeps saying that 
he's a subsoil of some sort and the 
fellow jumping on him yells that he's 
a sulky plow and is trying to dig him 

up.';_ 

Visitor — "And what is this little 
fellow trying to do, crawling on his 
hands and knees and looking for 
something of rather great import- 
ance?" 



Nurse — "That is a freshman. He 
imagines he is a great detective look- 
ing for the unknown X which is 
absent, he says, from the equation. 
He insists that he will find it pro- 
vided no one has replaced it with

Visitor — "I must speak to this 
young man. Good morning, young 
fellow." 

Patient No, 2— "Sir, how dare you,

Visitor (to patient coming towards 
him) — "Sir, you look wildly excited. 
Is there anything I can do for you?" 

Patient No. 3 — "Yes, I wish you'd 
make those 250 Agronomy questions 
stop chasing me around. They've 
been following me around all day and 
I'm tired of answering them. Do 
you think a good mulch in a dirty

as the specific gravity of your body 
immersed in water. Please don't 
flunk me mister or I'll stab myself with

mad too." 



"What is the most useless plant on

"OH GRACIOUS!" OR "A COR- 
RESPONDENCE COURSE IN 
LOVE" 

Harold was non-chalant. Oh 
Gracious! Harold how can you be 
so! (Thus you get a cue where the 
title comes in) Yes it was surely 
evident that Harold must be deeply 
in love somewhere for as he care- 
fully applied the Bay-Rum to his 
golden locks and carefully brushed 
back his hair, none but a blind man 
could have doubted that Daniel 
Cupid had been wielding his darts 
in Harold's heart for a mistaken 
target. 

"Oh dear!" said Harold, and in the 
same breath he was heard to say, 
"Say, cul, got the 'makings?' " He 
was back to earth again. However 
no one seemed to be weighed down 
with the "makins" or else they were 
sick and tired of feeding them to 
him forever, for when Harold saw 
that no "makins" were forthcoming, 
he carefully picked out a chair in a 
secluded spot, carefully examined 
the seat for tacks, and set himself 
for a quiet reading of the Sunday 
School Journal. (Just like the Police 
Gazette) . 

As there was no article by Jesse 
Jimmy or no article on "Temperance," 
Harold read the advertisements as a 
further amusement, but a far-away 
look now and then indicated that he 
was thinking of someone somewhere. 
(Where? O ask. Harold, really you 
must.) Anyway to make our story 
longer, his eye fell on this ad, 
"Correspondence Course in Love 

Win Your Girl by Becoming 
Wealthy 

Every young man knows that he 
can win the fairest girl, if he has 
money to buy her clothes with. Take 



our course and we'll show you how 
to get rich. Registration fee $5.00 
prepaid." 

"Ah," cried Harold, "I shall win 
the fair hand of Gwendoline the 
boiler maker. (Of course this was 
not said aloud, oh gracious no!) 

So Harold arose and taking his pen 
in hand (he couldn't write with his 
feet) wrote the letter to the Cor- 
respondence Institute including his 
registration fee of $5.00. 



(Dots indicate that two weeks has 
elapsed) . 

One bright, rainy morning in Feb- 
ruary, with the birds twittering in

Let's approach him and try to sell 
him a calendar. Oh, girls he's 
blushing terribly. Oh, isn't it pitiful. 
He's blushing himself to death. Some-

TO THE POWER PLANT 

What do you call yourself a plant 
for? Plants at least have some use 
in this world and why the "Power?" 
We learned the definition of "power" 
in Physics and you are debasing all 
of that wonderful knowledge that we

Physics as translated by the present 
sophomore class (and I guess they 
ought to know) "power" means 
"the rate of work per second."

Your work isn't even 3rd rate when 
it comes to supplying heat or giving 
us light. The only power you have 
is the power to freeze us out of the 
dorm, or make us near-sighted from 
trying to find your light. You deceive 
the public by allowing great clouds 
of smoke to arise from that chimney. 
What have you got that coal for? 

Now really dear old Plant, we did 
not mean to speak so harshly for we 
know that some days we get heat, 
especially when the temperature is 
around 80 degrees outdoors. Besides 
we often get plenty of light, on 
bright days and at night we get candle 
power when the college store has a 
supply of candles on hand. 

But it's a pretty sad case when a 
fellow starts shivering so that he has 
to be put in a straight- jacket and 
another fellow's room is raided 
by a bloodthirsty mob just because 
he happens to own a box of matches 
from which to get heat. And can 
you think of a more foolish question 
than this one a visitor happened to 
ask (he's dead now), "It's colder 

then in this room, isn't it?" — well 

we should expect it to be anyhow. 

Think it over power Plant.

You see, I room in the dorm, and we

Student — "Smoking? There isn't

VOL. I 



FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 1915 



NO. 14 



This will be a wonderful week for 
some. The week of Junior Prom, 
when everything and everyone that 
does not know the true condition 
of affairs, is badly deceived. Some 
of our society boys will be disguised 
in full dress suits, feeling as much at 
home as if they were in Berlin yelling, 
"Vive la France." Even the drill-hall 
will be in disguise and will probably 
be known as alias "The Dancing 
Pavilion." For the benefit of every 
one concerned and those not con- 
cerned we will give a few hints, 
namely : 

"Those not going to the Prom will 
refrain from addressing those that are 
in such terms as, 'Hello, Frank 
Scheufele, where you buying your 
collars now?" 

If you are one of the gallery 
sight-seers don't try to drown out 
the orchestra even if you don't like 
the way it plays for the Virginia 
Reels. 

If you are going to the grand old 
ball, inform your girls that shin 
guards are a good thin to wear. 

Don't try to get in on last year's 
ticket. 

Don't run into everyone on the 
floor as if you were running into a 
saloon. Don't yawn before 5 A. M. 
When you feel a yawn approaching, 
try sneezing instead. Don't confuse 
sneezing with snoozing. 



IF WE ONLY TOLD THE GIRL 
THE TRUTH 

1. I'd hate to dance thru life like 
this with you. 

2. Get off of my corns. 



3. Let's not ride in a taxi and save 
money. 

4. I can't afford to go to Proms 
more than once a year. 

5. This grub is pretty good. I'm 
going to tip the waiter a nickel when 
you aren't looking. 

6. I borrowed this dress-suit. 



OUR MOVIES 

The Perils of Poxine or The Safety 

Razor Was Not Her Size 

Yes, she belonged to this mysterious 
secret society. The Sewing Circle. 
Little Poxine was a French girl, 
sometimes known as Small Pox for 
short. The scene opens with Poxine 
in the den of thieves knitting bows 
for the Belgians' dancing pumps. 
She heaved a sight of relief as she 
finished them, but the heave wasn't 
over 20 feet. Sprightly, she tripped 
to the window, and after picking 
herself up, murmured in perfect 
French, "Watdaya mean, too cold 
for ice today?" 

"Too cold for selling ice," answered 
the ice-man from without. 

Then the ice-man added, weighing 
his words carefully (every ice team 
carries a weighing machine), "Do 
you know who I am? Well, I'm a 
secret service man." 

"Come in," the girl answered drop- 
ping her voice but recovering the 
fumble. 

He entered.

WAR NEWS IN BRIEF 

A force of 200 Turks, led by Gen. 
Shaughnessy, the German leader 
mutinied to-day and refused to eat 
Porter-House steaks on account of 
the high cost of living. (Via Con- 
stantinople) . 

Kaiser Wilhelm sent King George 
a valentine of bombs to-day. 

29,000 Frenchmen showed brilliant 
bravery to-day, capturing five 
wooden-legged Austrians. 

Germany draws the color line and 
refuses to fight if Jack Johnson is 
allowed to fight for France. 

Russia expects a great victory and 
possibly an end to the war, on account 
of the fact that Nick Carter, Frank 
Merriwell, Diamond Dick and 
Stealthy Steve have enlisted in their 
army. 



SENIOR CLASS MEETING 

President of Class — "We will now 
hold elections for this semester. Who 
wants to be President?" 

Voice in rear — "I elect myself and

Voice No. 2 — "That's a deal. I'm 
the most popular man in this class." 

Voice No. 3 — "You're a har. I 
am." 

Voice No. 4 — "I think Mr is 

doing something underhanded. He 
won't tell me who he's going to vote 
for. I think he's voting for a fraternity 
brother." 

President — "After thinking it over, 
I think I'll be president another 
semester. All those in favor and all 
those opposed designate in the usual 
manner. Very good. It's a vote." 

Voice No. 5 — "I demand a recount. 
I think I saw some one put up both 



hands, and somebody held me so 
I couldn't vote." 

Voice No. 6— "Who's a deal? 
Why is a motion? Where is it 
parliamentary ? ' ' 

Voice No. 7 — "Why not have a 
Mexican class (double meaning here) . 
Let everyone take a turn at being 
President." 

President — "Let's not have any 
class." 

Assembly — "We ain't." 



DID YOU KNOW THAT 

If Johnson should decide to go out 
for debating instead of playing ball 
this spring, it wouldn't help the ball

the blood was contributed by Higgin-

himself very useful during the first 
half by mopping up most of the

of him, wasn't it? Stowell refreshed 
himself at frequent intervals by 
falling thru a hole in the ice at the 
north end of the rink. Ross had a 
heated argument with some of the

THE ROMANCE OF JAGGED 

JAKE 

Or Why They Served Us Gravel 

When What We Want is Beans 

Smiling insolently, Jagged Jake 
drew a cigarette from his vanity case. 
"No, Algernon," he remarked to his 



prostrate foe, "I shall not release 
you just yet. I have a pur-r-r-pose 
in keeping you here!" 

Cold shivers ran up and down the 
region of Algernon's vertebrae, and 
the perspiration stood out on his 
forehead like cold sweat on a can of 
lemonade. 

"But my deah man,"Algy simpered. 

"Silence!" roared the desperado. 
Then he continued, not unkindly, 
"If your stature were the size of your 
intellect, you could run under a 
carpet sweeper without bending your 
knees." 

Algy lay dazed, revolving nebulous 
thoughts in his mind at the rate of 
40,000 revolutions per minute. Sud- 
denly the still air Vv^as broken by a 
staccato rattle — hark, the distant 
sound of hoof beats! With a muffled 
curse, Jagged Jake kicked Algernon 
in the pancreas and bade him. get up. 

"Coises! The cowpunchers of the 
Bar U Crescent K Ranch are upon 
us!" At this minute there was a sharp 
report, and a dull nauseating scrunch 
as a dum-dum bullet tore its way 
through 

(Note — This thrilling narrative will 
not be continued, as we didn't

LITERARY BLURBS 

Prof. Haskell's new book on "Farm 
Practice, Sound and Unsound," is 
selling rapidly in the rural districts. 
Experiments conducted in China, 
Ceylon, Hindustan and Rothamstead, 
England, are described in detail and 
will no doubt prove of great interest

A new seminar in Cosmopolitan 
Reading is being arranged by some of

Dear Miss Delia Dope: 

While attending a house party in 
Belchertown recently, I fell head 
over feet in love with a swell dame 



considerably^ above my station in life. 
She received my attentions with 
impunity, but at the crucial moment 
she said: "I can only be a sister to 
you; shut off the spark, you're be- 
ginning to skid." My heart leaped 
into my mouth and my face fell. 
Struggling with my emotions, I 
wrenched myself from her presence 
and walked away with a strained 
expression and a slight limp. Will 
you kindly recommend a remedy 
for cramps in the right arm? 
Yours amorously, 

J. Jenkins Slinkwitz. 



HALL OF SHAME 

The members of the faculty, their 
wives and lady friends are invited

Dr. Gage (after explaining the 
method of making agar media for

"Now you fellows will put the media

Bright student, 5 minutes later: 

"Say Doctor how am I going to 
put 150 cc. of media into one of those 
small 10 cc. test-tubes?"

THE FRIDAY WAR CRY 



VOL. I 



FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 1915 



NO. 16 



The Providence Journal recently 
asked in their columns why we 
called our paper the "War Cry" when 
there was already the Salvation Army 
"War Cry;" why not the "Rural 
Gazette" or the "Farm Crop." We'd 
like to know why they call their 
paper the "Journal" when there is a 
"Real" paper called the New York 
Journal. 



Web feet would be rather useful 
this kind of weather. 



There are more Hank stories going 
around now than Ford car stories. 
It must be terrible to be so popular. 



The track team appeared Friday 
and Saturday nights in their usual 
capacity as "also rans." Tufts must 
have a swell team. 



Now that an Evangelical Campaign 
is coming to Aggie it will give an 
opportunity for some lost souls around 
the campus to revive themselves. 



ALUMNI NOTES 

Bevan, '13, was seen around college 
this week, he has a new "soup 
strainer" growing in the same place 
where the last one was growing in 
the early spring of 1913. 

Doc Fay, '13, has been elected on 
the Monson school board. Doc 
must be passing out the same line 
to the natives in Monson as he used 
to up at Aggie. 



"Newt" Dearing, '14, writes from 
Florida that he has the best tan this 
year that he ever had any summer. 

They say Joe Macone, '13, has been 
seen recently near his home in Con- 
cord practicing for a race. Perhaps 
"Shorty" is going to race "Big" 
Samson on Alumni Day. 



HALL OF SHAME 

Popular Instructors on the 
Campus: — 

Are those that are visiting their 
sick grandmother, or are busy else- 
where. 

Always read the French and Ger- 
man translations before calling on a 
fellow to translate. 

Forget to read the class roll very 
often. 

Allow the class to come in twenty 
minutes past the hour and leave at 
ten minutes of the hour. 

Smoking allowed during recitations, 
in other words, have a smoke-talk. 

Tell stories that have no relation 
to the course and that are "funny" 
so that you can laugh at them (?). 

Serve pillows during long-winded 
lectures so that there may be peaceful 
slumber. 



1st Sophomore (Interested in 
Botany) — "Say, Bill, to vv^hat family 
do you think this plant belongs?" 

2nd Sophomore — "You better look

REGINALD'S LETTERS 

With this issue, the "Professor" 
starts a new column which he hopes 
will become of aid and interest to the 
many readers of the "War Cry," 
especially those among the fair sex. 
All replies will be cheerfully answered 
through these columns; those expect- 
ing replies through the mail must 
enclose stamped envelopes. 



Dear "Reginald"^ 

I have a great confession to make 
to you, one which I have never dared 
to admit, even to Sylvia. My eyes 
are brown, but the fashion this 
season tends to black eyes. I am 
hopelessly behind the times, and am 
prostrated. What shall I do? 

Adelaine. 



Dear "Addie" — 

I have a pretty good punch. 
Call around at the office some day and 
I'll see what I can do for you. 

Professor Reginald. 



Professor — ■ 

I am very much worried about the 
very bad cold that I've got and now 
it has gotten down into my lungs. 
I've used Peruna and Scott's Ivanhoe 
and neither of these medicines has 
done me any good. I'm afraid I may 
be departing soon. 

Harold. 
Dear Harold — 

While you're here, let me say 
"Good-bye" to you as it would be 
very impolite to wait until you had 
departed. But why depart? Do 
you owe you room rent? For your 
cold, Harold, I knew a friend who took 
a spoonful of cyanide before break- 
fast and he was never troubled with 
a cold after that. 

Professor. 



Reginald, Old Top — 

I have ducededly large feet, don't 
cher know, and the girls make great 
sport of me. You cawn't imagine 
how embarrassing it is. Bah Jove, 
though, I have a great understanding 
y'know, I can't see how to help 
myself. 

Algernon. 
Oh, Algie— 

They say that dawncing reduces 
the feet. Take a tip from Hank and 
try it. 

Sympathetically, 

Reginald. 



Dear Professor — 

They say that some day we will be 
allowed to smoke; oh Goody! But I 



**Every Blow Above the Belt" 



can't make up my mind what to 
smoke. 

'18. 
Dear Innocence — - 

Billie smokes Bull Durham, and 
"Squirt" uses Lucky Strike, but 
don't do it. Try something good and 
buy Sweet Caporals or Meccas. 
Advicingly, 

Professor. 



Dear Reginald — 

I am very much troubled with 
superfluous hair on my face. For- 
merly the boys were very much 
attracted to me, but of late, the 
"down" has spoiled this little chicken. 
Goshingly, 

Henrietta. 
Dear Hen — 

Send your name and address with 
a five dollar bill to King C. Gillette. 

"Reggy." 



Reginald, My Boy — 

I am 47 years of age and the hair 
is commencing to become gray around 
my temples. What shall I do? 

Delicia. 
Dearest Delicia — 

Cheer up! I once saw a sixty year 
old girl with a wig that gave her a 
"sixteen-and-never-been-kissed"eflect- 
Affectionately, 

Reginald.

That we don't get music with our

That some fellows never get a

printed in it? 



We hear that several new courses 
in Farm Mechanics are to be intro- 
duced next year. Why not add a 
course or two in Kitchen Mechanics

VOL. I 



FRIDAY, MARCH 5, 1915 



NO. 17 



This week is Ulumni Week. You 
can tell by the large number of pros- 
perous looking gentlemen on the cam- 
pus. You're apt to see some class 
scraps if any '89 men should happen 
to meet any '88ers. See that stout 
gentleman conversing with Prof. 
Curry Hicks. Watch him put his 
hand in his pocket (we don't mean 
watch Prof. Hicks put his hand in the 
gent's pocket) and help the cause 
of the Athletic Field along. Have you 
noticed those fellows telling of the old, 
old days when they were students at 
the college. It's strange that so many 
of them are still living, for would you 
believe it, they were way back in 
the class of 1913. Look at that fellow 
over there sympathizing with Prexy 
over the troubles and overwork that 
comes with being the head of an 
institution. Well, that's Jawn Pellett, 
principal of the Cape Elizabeth High 
School, the largest school of its kind 
in that town. Mr. Pellett was in the 
class of '14, together with Jeff Calvert 
who is now a courteous floor-walker. 
You may not think it plausible but 
that young man in the blue suit 
stops at the Copley Plaza in Boston. 
Why, yes, he is a motorman in the 
Boston Elevated service and there 
a.re lots of passengers getting on in 
Copley Square. See that fat fellow of 
the class of 1912 talking to a senior. 
He is telling him what a big, fine boy 
the said senior has grown up to be 
and is reminding him of the days he 
used to run errands for the '12 man. 
Some of those men we do not know, 
but they are Aggie men all right 
because they are pretty good looking 
and look prosperous. Nuf 'ced. 



HORRORS! "YOODLES" IM- 
PLICATES AGGIE MEN IN 
COURT PROCEEDINGS 

"Yoodles" has actually confessed 
that she once lived in the town of 
Amherst and attended Aggie with the 
class of 'Umpty Ott. That is, she 
worked in the kitchen of the Hash 
House but all of the 'Umpty Ott 
class knew her well, even the waiters. 
Hamsfield only ran the elevator from 
the basement to the serving room and 
used to write love messages on the 
fried eggs. It came to light that 
Hamsfield was extravagant and spent 
a fortune on "Yoodles." Once they 
were actually seen in the 20c seats 
at the movies. When the Judge 
questioned the girl regarding the 
card games she was known to amass 
wealth by, "Yoodles" again broke 
down (the railing she v/as leaning on) 
and confessed that she led many of 
the boys astray by teaching them the 
game of "Slap-jacks." During the 
Commencement Exercises of the Class 
of 'Umpty Ott the class won the 
"Class Sing Contest" mainly because 
of the fact that "Yoodles" composed 
their songs, such as "Will Anyone 
Here Miss Yoodles" and "Down with 
King Alcohol — Drink it Down." 

Among the witnesses at the case was 
Dabrovitch, the town tailor, who 
claims that "Yoodles" owes him 
money. The judged asked him how 
it was that "Yoodles' ' owed him. money 
and the tailor said she asked him to 
help her press her suit against Hams- 
field.

CLASS TREE PLANTING AFTER 

THE EVANGELISTIC 

CAMPAIGN 

The jolly Juniors recklessly raised 
their foaming steins of Moxie while 
the class tree was firmly planted in 
the earth. The less vile among them, 
silently munched their coffee ice- 
cream cones, and murmured cheer 
after cheer. The president of the 
class raised his hand to silence them, 
and his voice broke out clear after he 
has consumed his cough drop. "Fel- 
lows, to-night we are about to cover 
the roots of this pure Palm Tree in 
this soil. I know it will grow as well 
as if it were in sunny Cuba if we all 
pray vociferously. Now, men, cover 
its roots and some one water it with 
the distilled H2o." He was about to 
go on when suddenly he gazed upon 
a youth who actually was sipping 
soda-water thru a straw. "Base 
youth," the president cried, "You, 
Elmer Gay lord Fontleroy, consider 
your misdemeanor. You probably are 
wicked enough to attend the movies, 
where they turn the lights low or else 
steal away from some restaurant with 
extra tooth-picks. Men, of the class 
of '19 let us leave this poor unfortunate 
to himself, so that he may think of 
his wrongs." 

They left poor Elmer struggling 



hard to gulp down his salty tears 
which dampened his long brown eye- 
lashes. "This is too much, too 
much," wept Elmer to himself, and, 
drawing his pocket- flashlight, he shot 
himself three times." 



The members of the War Cry 
board are a bunch of sore-heads. 
Sure we are, because Fritz Larson, 
captain of the Sophomore Independent 
Bowling Team told us so this morning. 
Fritz didn't mean to get excited over 
it but he reminded us of the fact 
that we did not publish an account 
of the ignominious (that's a good 
word) defeat that his team handed 
to the West Entry Bowling Team a 
couple of weeks ago. You see two 
members of the West Entry team are 
on the War Cry staff. Therefore, the 
board is a bunch of Sore-heads. 
It was a close match and the Soph. 
Independents bowled in great shape. 
If it is not too old to be good news, 
we might add that the score was 
1330 to 1288. Hooper and Sauter 
starred for the winners while the 
West Entry team had no particular 
stars. 

We apologize, Fritz. How do you 
feel now? 



'15 — "You can get a lot out of that 
course." 

'16 — "I never heard of a humanity 
course of that nature. If it was 
Pomology I would think you were 
right. 

'15 — "Well, you can stay out of 
this course most of the time."

'Mid blossoms of roses fair to see

There sat a youth and a maiden wee.

Dear Miss Sid Largerbeer: 

I am in a predicament I can't 
explain. I am a young girl 18 years 
old and have been going with a 
young man who is attending college, 
and who says he will marry me as 
soon as he graduates. As he has been 
going to college about 8 years so far, 
you see I have been waiting quite a 
while. Sometimes I almost wonder 
if he is going to college at all. 

But this isn't the worst of it. 
I never let Roger kiss me. Now he is 
coming around telling me he kisses 
other girls and they kiss him. Further- 
more he is angry with me. Tell me, 
Miss Largerbeer, is Roger justkiddin? 
How can I win him back? 

enisoreK yraM. 

If you did but know, poor child, 
it is very coarse, not to say vulgar, 
to use "kiddin" when you mean 
"kidding." Beyond this point I 
should say you were too young to 
think of love. If Roger were any 
kind of a man and worthy of your 
trusting heart, he would have been 
through college by this time anyway. 
Six or seven years at the most ought 
to be enough for anyone to go to 
college. No real gentleman ever 
tells one girl what he does with 
others. Forgive and forget such a 
discourteous gentleman .

ELECTIVE (?) COURSES 

2. Mysteries. — A general course 
dealing with local community prob- 
lems. A thoroughly practical pre- 
sentation of the various uses of 
manures, ancient and modern. Many 
interesting experiments will be per- 
formed by the individual student 
under close direction of the head of 
the department (in charge). 

Prerequisite. Oral examination in 
presence of the advisors. Aquatics 
1 and Public Speaking 1 are strongly 
recommended as preparations for this 
course. 

Freshman. 1 Conference and 1 
laboratory period. 

Prof. Ross and numerous laboratory 
assistants. 



After considerable red-tape, a com- 
mittee of students (appointed by 
themselves) succeeded in matching 
the members of the student body 
with the illustrious members of the 
high and mighty faculty to an athletic 
meet. The meet was held March 6, 
Alumni Day, from 5 A. M. until 
9 P. M. in the M. A. C. Stadium. 
Special trains began to arrive early 
at the C. V. & B. & M. stations, 
consequently before the meet began 
there were thousands of spec-potatoes 
at M. A. C. waiting for the fiery fray 
to begin. 

Many prominent men among whom 
were the Hon. Geo. Zabriskie, 2nd 
(do not forget the 2nd), Judge Paul 
Serex, Jr., and the great statesman, 
Col. Arthur Geo. Wei gel, were present. 



The weather promised to be fair, for 
the sun shone brightly, the rain came 
down in torrents, and there was not 
a cloud in the sky. 

The results of the meet are given 
in logical order according to the im- 
portance of the events.

Wm. Cowls Dickinson, '16. Won by 
Prof. Smith 3-1. "Susie" lost his

OUR HERO AT M. A. G. 

Introduction: Many stories have 
been written regarding heroes at 
college such as "Stover at Yale," 
"How I Won My Numerals," etc. 
Therefore it is only fitting and proper 
that we should have an M. A. C. 
hero. We herewith give the thrilling 
account of Eujust Watchmee during 
his four years of college life — not 
Freshman College Life. 
1st. Stanza 

As the stalwart young fellow 
alighted from the B. & M. train he was 
astonished to find such a large number 
of fellows there to welcome him. 
Even the captain of the fencing team, 
Fig Newton, was there. Fig thrust 
for an opening and shook hands with 
our hero, Eujust Watchmee. Eujust 
handed his valise to the Dean of the 
college to carry up to his room. 

That night young Watchmee found 
that all the fraternities were after 
him. A member of the Mecca Sigs 
handed him the makings and invited 
our hero to call around to the house 
any time. One of the Cheepa Taffa 
Price men told him how much more 
economical it would be to join his 
crowd. He was also favorably im- 
pressed with the perfumery that the 
I-Vori-Sopes had on. The Slappa Thi 
crowd seemed too rough and the Rye 



Stu fellows only had six members of 
the football team, five varsity base- 
ball men and no Phi Kappa Phi men 
in their frat. Finally Eujust told 
them all to go home because he 
wished to retire. Before he showed 
the fellows the door, our hero sent 
George Pelican, captain of the foot- 
ball team, up to the post ofifice with 
his mail. 

Eujust Watchmee found that his 
room-mate was nothing less than a 
rough-neck and even had to go so far 
as to command him to go behind 
the screen while our hero undressed. 
His room-mate was an upper classman 
and a member of the Etiquette 
Society for the Extinction of Cordu- 
roy Trousers. 

The next day, after having his 
breakfast brought to his room by 
Chet Scoff hard, the night clerk at 
Draper Hall, Watchmee went up to 
college to register. 

As he entered the office of the 
Registrar, Professor Hasbrouch said 
"Good morning, young man, let me 
welcome you to Aggie before signing 
your card. Here, have some makings." 

"Sir, I have no time to waste here 
in idle conversation, "answered Watch- 
mee, "I wish to register." 

"Very well," exclaimed the Regis- 
trar, "what is your name?" 

"Oh, take your time," was the 
retort, "wait until I fetch my card 
from my case." 

"I beg your pardon, for hurrying 
you so. I did not mean it but there 
are fifty fellows in line now," the 
Prof, apologized. 

At the treasurer's office our hero 
found it to be his painful duty to 
thrust four or five seniors out the door 
for trying to get ahead of him in the 
line. The president of the Senate, 
Belcha Towne, was present and was 



"Every Blow Above the Belt' 



about to explain that it was a custom 
for seniors to go ahead of underclass- 
men," but some one whispered to 
him, "Sh, that's Eujust Watchmee." 

Instead of bothering with seeing 
the Dean, our hero decided to send 
him word to call around to his room 
some night. 

That afternoon, young Watchmee 
went out for the football team. 
Tlie coach was so pleased to see 
him that he had the youth run to 
North Amherst and back instead of 
going around the field. When Eujust 
returned from his little jaunt, he 
practiced falling on the ball and the 
coach sent the rest of the squad up in 
the tower so as to get a bird's eye view 
of how our hero did it. 

It is impossible to describe Watch- 
mee's popularity. Even the co-eds 
wanted to know him. 

At this point Watchmee bravely 
walked out of this chapter, so you 
will have to wait until next week to 
read more of him. 



HALL OF SHAME 

When Prof. Hart speaks to "Reg" 
Hart we'd call it a heart to heart 
talk. 

If Chisholm could only use his legs 
to as good advantage as he does his 
arms there'd be few that could beat 
him. 

If we all can come back in the 
future looking as prosperous on alumni 
day as some of the alumni did 
Saturday there shouldn't be any 
kick coming. I wonder how many 
of those sporty-looking alumni are 
still owing Kenny money on that 
$12,000 — student loan that we read 
about in the recent bulletin? 

Mr. "Peter" W. J. Mahoney was 
more or less in our midst Alumni Day 



looking very prosperous now that he 
is a working man in the world. 
Pete had a '91 button turned upside 
down to show that he was a '16 man 
for two years and a half. 

March 13th will be Thanksgiving 
Day at Aggie, the Short-Horns are 
leaving. Short prayer meeting in 
the chapel, Brother White will lead 
the prayer.

VOL. I 



FRIDAY, MARCH 26, 1915 



NO. 19 



SEEN AND HEARD AT EDDIE'S 

Scene — Buck's Cafe 
Hero — 

Hooperup, the Handsome Waiter 
Minor Characters — 

Miscellaneous Bums 
Time— 6 P. M. 
Enter — Bilious Bummer Bradley. 

Seats himself down in a clamly 
fashion and with a dignified air 
utters in a protudinous voice, "Waiter, 
bring me some chicken croquettes." 

"Fowl ball," shouts our hero 
Hooperup, through the rat hole. 

Enter — A highly esteemed gentle- 
man, alias Capillus Boiar in disguise 
of a protozoan. 

Struts about as if he owns the 
place, then suddenly he throws him- 
self vociferously in a nearby chair, 
and whispers in the ear of our illus- 
trious hero, "Bring me a glass of 
milk." 

Our waiter hastened up to the hole 
and with a gleeful voice yelps to the 
kitchen scullions, "Let's all in." 

But alas 'tis sad but true, our 
hero's voice has tingled outside of 
its boundaries and has reached the 
ears of a popular stage artist, Sir 
Buts Burlesque if you please. He seats 
himself down in a lordly fashion and 
because of his tipping ability is 
waited on immediately. "I will have 
a glass of milk too," without giving 
our illustrious hash slinger a chance 
to ask him what he wished. 

"Who left the door open," is now 
heard uttered by some of the bean 
eaters. But dear reader you will be 
glad to know that a prominent 
social lion has entered upon the scene. 
I won't keep this a secret but will 
let you in on it. This individual 



hails from the notable burg called 
Turners Falls by some, and by others 
who know the place "Little Germany." 
He calls himself Puffer Sawdust but 
we recognize him as the "Social 
Lion." He sways in a lazy fashion to 
his customary stall and lounges him- 
self in the chair nearby. 

"Frankfurts and sauerkraut, good 
and hot," he yells to our oilcloth 
wiper. 

"Two Fido's and a bale of hay," 
shouts our hero, "and let 'em sizzle." 

Thus the scene finished for our 
guests' appetites have been utterly 
put to rout by the feed which the 
King of Them All is throwing into his 
bread basket. 



OUR HERO AT M. A. C. 

(The only story in existence as tedious 
as "The Perils of Pauline") 
Chapter H 

With his 10 o'clock lunch wrapped 
in a leaf from his "Manual of Guard 
Duty," our hero is once more in our 
midst on the campus. He felt very 
proud of himself for here he had 
alread^^ been away from home for a 
whole week and he was not in the least 
bit home-sick. Well, you wouldn't 
be either if your prep, school had 
been the Concord Reform School. 
He remembered well his prep, school 
song which was much like one of our 
own — "Crash thru the line boys, 
battle down the guards." (Watchmee 
himself, had escaped the reform school 
guard to the tune of this song). 

That night instead of attending his 
"Night Shirt Parade" as every polite 
freshman should, Eujust decided 
that he should keep a date with his 
beloved, Cleo Patrick, the unknown

belle of Amherst. Eujust was no differ- 
ent from any freshman. They all ex- 
perience the thrilling love of the town 
dames until they learn better. Well, 
anyhow, Cleo was different from the 
rest of the girls of the town. The 
college had offered her a job as 
stenographer of Grinnell Arena, so 
that she could be nearer young 
Watchmee. Mr. Sauchelli, a noble 
senior, had suggested that the Arena 
be used as a dance hall for Informals 
so that such men as Dick Sears, 
Ben Sanders and such species, co:;ld 
kick up more dust and perform the 
Dutch Roll more safely than in the 
other barn. Therefore, Cleo lost her 
chance to become the dashing stenog. 
of Grinnell Arena and keep account of 
the saucy prehistoric weddings, etc., 
at the Select Parties. 

Recklessly Eujust Watchmee drew 
his sweetheart into Adams' Drug 
Store so that he could dissipate in an 
orange phosphate at one of the tables 
and be far from the public gaze of the 
Blind Men's Union and other heavy 
batters of the third team who might 
chance to enter. 

"Sweetheart," he murmured dur- 
ing a gargle of the phosphate, "lend 
me a dime and we shall order up 
another drink." 

"Aw, take yer elbow off me gum. 



yu ninny," answered the companion 
of our hero. (Cleo lived on the 
Aggie Gold Coast ever since her 
childhood days, and had, therefore, 
fallen into the same drift of speech 
that the Gold Coasters used). 

Strange enough, Eujust Watchmee 
found it unnecessary to borrow any 
money from his fair one, for he was 
right within reach of the cash register 
and the occupants and employees of 
the store were at this moment care- 
fully watching how the new stamp- 
machine worked with a plugged nickel. 

Just then our hero decided that he 
had better take a little walk for Prof. 
Hicks had entered and told Watch- 
mee he could not get any credit for 
Physical Education by exchanging 
love pats and coos, so our scene 
changes. 

Note — Keep you eye on this spot 
until our next number and note the 
scene change. 



We wonder if James T. Nicholson 
is responsible for this little addition 
under his ofhce hours : 

The members of the faculty and 
Prexy may see. me by special appoint- 
ment provided the matter is of especial 
importance. 



HALL OF SHAME 

If there's one man we pity that's 
Caldwell. If "Bones" don't make 
any more profit on his papers than the 
WAR CRY has made on the last few 
issues, he is a martyr to journalism. 
This is not an ad. for "Bones" or a 
cry for help from us, but if you want 
the WAR CRY to exist buy your own 
paper and stop reading someone 
else's. 

The Ways and Means Committee 
may consider putting an extension 
on the Waiting Station.

Babbitt, '17, don't believe in fussing

HEALTH RULES FOR APRIL 

1. To show your strength of mind, 
go without a hat even on the coldest 
days. 

2. Discard your sweater, remark- 
ing, "Why, this is spring weather." 

3. Never hesitate at getting your 
feet wet. It's a sign of hardiness (also 
foolhardiness) . 

4 Upon contracting a cold, sneeze 
and cough as much as possible among 
your friends. Why suffer alone? 

5 Before retiring at night see that 
the window is shut perfectly tight. 
Nothing is more harmful than breath- 
ing pure air. 

6 By staying out in the April 
showers you can do away with the 
curse of the basement shower baths. 

7 Plaisted is forever putting his 
foot in it. Therefore, don't sleep 
with your mouth open. 

8 As Prexy says, go out for 
baseball. Remember Lincoln (not 
Abe) had never been out for debating 
before he came to M. A. C. 

9 Last but not least — Don't kick 
this month (April). Many a good toe 
has been ruined the first of April. 



DANCING LESSONS 

NO. L, UOY^ TO DO THE FOX 

TROT 

Setting your mattress up for a 
dummy, casually approach same and 
fling yourself at it. Try to secure a 
Half Nelson hold and without knock- 



ing the table lamp over or breaking

with liniment by an assistant. You 
are now ready to Fox trot.

NO. 20 



NINETEEN-ATE-TEEN 

The Freshman president raised his 
hoary face out of the bowl of noodle 
soup and breathed for air. He looked 
around and concluded that these 
bearded youths were actually his 
classmates who had assembled for a 
feed after having evaded the 1917 
man-eating crew. There was a horri- 
ble smell of rubber in the hall which 
was found to be due to some of the 
Freshmen getting hot under the 
collar because it was rumored the 
Sophs had not sent any congratu- 
lations. Some of the men had already 
become famous, busts being made of 
them by a few ferocious Sophs. 
There had been quite a barbeque in 
the banquet room when the Chinese 
cook was seen to have had a haircut. 
There were at least a dozen Fresh- 
men that had a shave and one man 
had stopped to use his napkin during 
the meal. The fact that some of the 
men wore a rapt expression was due 
to the fact that they had come in 
with a terrible bundle (clothes?). 
After the President had obtained the 
attention of the fellows he exclaimed, 
"Classmates, we have won a glorious 
victory, which — " But just at that 
moment he fell asleep with the rest 
of the class. They had only walked 
35 or more miles.

The War Cry announces the board that will 
take up the work from now on. We can 
safely guarantee that these men will put out 
War Crys that will be the best possible and 
we hope all the fellows in college will help 
to support the paper and help these fellows 
to put out a humorous paper that will be the 
equal of that of any other college. We know 
these fellows can "deliver the goods' as their 
work in the competition recently run, was of 
the best nature possible. The board is as 
follows: 

"Fritz" Larson, . . . Editor-in-Chief 
"Flooi.e" Buckman, Asso. and Dept. Editor 
"Bingo" Jones, . . Business Manager 

"Hopeful!" Warren,

Well, here we are again, after a 
leave of absence of over a month. 
We are about to play the role of the 
oft-mentioned "Come-back." Receive 
us with open arms and we are yours 
for three cents. 



For a year at least, one old joke 
can be said no more. It used to be 
a common remark, "What were you 
doing on the last car last night, 
Bart Ender?" The last battle was 
fought April 30th so we were told, 
even the Prohibition Club and the 
Y. M. C. A. being represented. 
The crepe now hangs on the door of 
Dickey's. 



ORNITHOLOGICAL 

The vnie of a certain man has been 
married three tim.es. Her maiden 
name was Partridge, her first hus- 
band was named Robbins, her second 
Sparrow, the present Quale. There 
are now two young robins, one sparrow 



and quales. One grandfather was a 
Swan, and another a Jay, but he's 
dead now and a bird of Paradise, 
Canary Island, and the one who wrote 
this is a Lyre. 



SAD— BUT— TRUE 

Mrs. Swordfish didn't raise her 
boy to be a soldier or a sailor either, 
so instead of sending young Sword- 
fish to West Point she sent him to 
Aggie, of which General Boyer had 
blown so much about. The youth 
detested drill, claiming that it bored 
him, his father being a carpenter. 
Just for spite, young Swordfish drilled 
his worst each year, used up his cuts, 
and fell asleep whenever the com- 
mand "Parade Rest" was given. 
Until time camic around for his 
Junior year, sad to relate the boy 
was made a first lieutenant with the 
rest of the officers. From a true, 
experience. 



Almost any of the Profs, will agree 
that the Twilight Sleep is a fine 
thing, but they don't like the way it is 
practised in class-rooms by some of 
the fellows. 



The Juniors had a close vote on 
their "Wet vs. Dry" Junior tree 
planting, 45 to 43 in the favor of the 
"wets." From what we heard of 
the affair (and we ought to know) 
some of the "drys" were just bashful 
at their previous class-meeting for 
they represented the Siege of Booze 
Rum by drowning out some of the 
so-called "wets." 



A NEW ARRIVAL 

Harry Lauder, Houdini, and other 
notable characters of the same type 



"Every Blow Above the Belt" 



paid us a visit in the person of Scotty 
the sailor, the champion rope tier of 
Bonny Scotland. Even the Mighty 
Curran was foiled in the attempt 
to tie "Scotty" so he couldn't release 
himself. Scotty would sure be a good 
president for the Freshmen Class dur- 
ing the banquet season. 



A Sophomore during a promenade 
with a Smith girl made this remark: 

Freshmen caretaker — Did you 
see those autos skid? 

Smith Blonde — Sir, how dare 
you call me that? 



SPEAK PLAINLY 

'There was a little lawyer man 
Who gently smiled as he began 
Her dear dead husband's will to scan. 
And thinking of his coming fee. 
He said to her quite tenderly 
You have a nice fat "legacy." 
Next morning as he lay in bed 
With plasters on his broken head. 
He wondered what in h — he'd 
said." 



HOWJA HIT THE QUIZ? 

The man who got 90: "Gee, wot 
a pipe! I reckon I nailed that for 
a high one. 'N I didn't bone for it 
neither — all you gotter do is use 
your bean." 

The man who got 70: "Some 
quiz! Nothin' much hard about it, 
but it sort of got yer goat. I'd have 
had a hundred only " etc., etc. 

The man who flunked: "Well, I 
ain't no crabber but that's what I 
call a raw deal. Nothin' in it but 
memory work — gotter learn the whole 
book or else yuh get stepped on. 
What the heck does that prof, think 
he's givin' us?" 



THERE IS A MAN 

There is a man who never drinks 
Nor smokes, nor chews, nor swears; 

Who never gambles, never flirts 
And shuns all sinful snares — 

He's Paralyzed. 

There is a man who never does 
A thing that is not right; 

His wife can tell just where he is 
At morning, noon and night — 

He's Dead! 



Soph to unsuspecting Fresh — Look 
here you mut, you want to keep your 
eyes open around here. 

Frosh — Why? 

Soph — They'll think you are crazy 
if you go around with them closed. 



Wallie Dodge, trying to kid a girl: 
"Oh yes, I have a lot of pigs to take 
care of. Have to feed them three 
times a day,. . . .etc." 

Probably Wallie was thinking of 
his job in the Lunch Room.

VOL. II 



FRIDAY, MAY 14, 1915 



NO. 1 



Don'ts to the Visiting Neophytes 

DON'T get delirious if you see great 
numbers of men walking around 
with black cheese cloth thrown about 
their bodies and a pecular hat on 
their heads. They are not under- 
takers nor mourners. They are 
absolutely harmless and have but 
this one bit of covering for protection. 
Speak to them as you would your 
own father. 

DON'T start up from your table 
in the Hash House and rush out of 
the door if you see the eats flying 
around in the air about you. Your 
potatoes may get cold and if your 
coffee is strong enough it will run 
away. 

DON'T run down the street in 
your pajamas or your night dress, if 
something like the sound of wild 
Indians comes to your ears. It is 
only the Varsity Marble Team prac- 
ticing on the floor above. Besides 
the night is liable to be chilly. 

DON'T faint at any uprising. It 
is much more difficult to take care of 
yourself when unconscious. 

DON'T make too many ac- 
quaintances with the feminine sex 
during your stay, for there are hardly 
enough to go the rounds as it is. 
Better wait until you become a Fresh- 
man. Then opportunities are plenti- 
ful. Not so Brethren? 

DON'T offer to pay any car fares 
while you are riding in our illustrious 
"Baby Carriages." Let your escort 
pay, we are all floating with money 
up here. 

BUT CHOOSE "OLD AGGIE" 
AS YOUR FEATURE ALMA 
MATER, then you will appreciate 
a few of these DON'TS. 



The Friday War Cry 

Minus the preliminaries of blowing 
of trumpets and sounding of symbols 
the first number of the second volume 
of the War Cry makes its first appear- 
ance on the campus under the leader- 
ship of the new board. We sincerely 
hope that it is accorded one of the 
heartiest receptions ever tendered 
the paper by the student body. We 
shall endeavor to merit the good 
opinions of the fellow students and 
to do our utmost in producing a paper 
which shall be humorous and at the 
same time equal a similar paper of 
any other college. 

But in our endeavors we desire 
that the fellows not only support the 
paper financially but hand in any 
humorous articles as well as short 
stories. Therefore show a little co- 
operation with us, for "A good laugh 
makes us better friends with ourselves 
and everybody around us." 

Let us therefore, dedicate this 
issue to High School Day, and show 
the visiting neophytes that M. A. C. 
is a college and the only college on 
the map. 

If you have one laugh lurking some- 
where inside after you have read this 
copy — the next number will surely 
get it. Don't forget! Better have 
your three cents ready for the next 
number. 

Our last word is — Don't worry 
about the old fashioned man who 
used to burn midnight oil studying 
books and now has a son who burns 
midnight gasoline studying girls but 
do a little reading in the War Cry 
to your friend in the colleges "over 
yonder." There is more than one way 
to be able to stand in right With het".

Dope 

Fellow nickle chasers and P. A. 
Butt Snipers, including members of 
the Phili-loo-loo and Pelican Clubs, 
I have arrived. You ask, who I 
am? and how did I drift into this 
burgh. Well, coming down to potato 
pie, I am the guy who's come to 
put the "War" in the War Cry. 
But before continuing any further, I 
think it best to kind of get a little 
confidence in you, my Pelican Gobbers. 
So I will tell you how I came and 
what I didn't see. I arrived last night 
on the Knickerbocker Freight, and 
lustily, but softly fell off at the C. V. 
station. I started up that lively 
thoroughfare and soon my eyes were 
dazzled by the great white way in 
the center of the town. The first 
thing I hit was the beef trust, which 
appeared in person as the Cheese of 
Police. I inquired from him where 
I could locate the headquarters of 
the 'War Cry." He directed 
me precisely but "dear reader." I 
could not continue any further for 
my old carcass was on its last leg and 
needed winding up, so I permiscuously 
stepped into a nearby cafe. Now, 
then I threw a few beans into my 
gullet, which I could almost hear 
running a race down my oesophagus 
and making a final dash for my 



bread basket. I soon filled up my 
vacant tenement and as I was about 
to depart, a nimble neophyte came 
in, to whom I was introduced to as 
my employer. We immediately pro- 
ceeded to the headquarters and now 
that I am located, before going any 
further I want to give you all the 
glad hand and offer you the privilege 
of bed and board with me as long 
as I hold this job. Furthermore as 
I want to get in right, I offer to your 
approval a can of P. A. which will 
stand on my desk, and can be used 
more frequently or less so. 

Now then, amorous asses, I will 
open a column in the War Cry known 
as "Light Handouts" and I am at 
your disposal to answer all questions. 

If your razor is dull, be sure that the crease 
in your trousers may serve in its place. 
Therefore patronize Scottie.

"Who saw him die?" 

"I," said the Willie. "I saw him 
die." 

"Who caught his blood?" 

"Not I," said the Mount Holyoke

sorry that the beastly creature ex- 
pired, and I quite refused to ease his

"Who'll make his shroud?" 

"I," said the Smith damsel. "I'll

"We," cried Livermore Hank and

SANDERSON & THOMPSON 

Our Hero at M. A. C. 

(Continued, and maybe forgotten) 

Our hero, Eujust Watchmee, had 

not favoured our beautiful "Adgye" 

Icampus very long, before he noticed 

that the Legion of Fussers headed by 



Cunny Blough and Fud Bisher knew 
where things were doing. Of a late 
summer evening in the fall, they would 
don their blazers (at least Cunny 
did), and their Transparent Trousers, 
pay their six cents, and come home at 
midnight blowing about "the time" 
they had had. The worst of it was 
that the Campus heard about it for 
two weeks after. 

Eujust had a loving one at home, 
but like all the rest, he thought he 
could get away with it on the Wilds 
of Dippy Hill or the steps of the 
Pepper box. So he accosted the 
Veteran at the game, who was none 
other than our friend, Eddie Selkregg. 
Sell knew a good thing when he saw 
it, so our hero asked him for a knock 
down. That is not the way most of 
our freshmen meet the Fluffs — usually 
the Informal Com. is looking for trade, 
and offers to be the go-between. 
But Watchmee was different. (So 
is this story). 

The Best Hunting Ground, thought 
our hero, was Across the River; so 
he hired Louis Picard's best Car for 
the paltry sum of Twelve Cents. 
The car was crowded with fifteen or 
more seniors standing, but an Upper 
Classman ordered a sophomore to 
dust off his seat, which he then offered 
to Watchmee. Our hero grasped his 
meaning, as well as the opportunity 
and took the Load Off His Feet. 
Our Hero, with a saving grace 
boarded a Schooner Coming across the 
Bar as soon as he had alighted from 
the car. No, Gentle Reader, Hamp 
is not a sea cost town. Far from it. 
Even the Ocean Breezes are dry there. 
Neither was it According to Hoyle to 
Carry On the way he did, but he 
Thought he knew how to impress 
Her from Moscow, Pa. A Bunch of 
the Girls were grouped about the 



"Every Knock a Boost" 



Reception Room, or rather Torture 
Chamber,of the House as our hero and 
his Escort entered. They soon left, 
however. All they wanted was to 
see Who It Was. They were dis- 
appointed, because they all knew 
Selkregg. Eujust Watchmee made 
great headway That Night. Before 
they Went Back to the House, they 
were engaged — to take supper to- 
gether Some Night at the Sign of 
the Retired Pirate. 

Eujust had a wonderful Line, and 
made Fud Bisher angry next Morning 
by telling about His Girl. Fud 
thought the only one who had a Right 
To Talk about such things was 
Himself. Eujust wanted an Informal 
right away, so he told Lanny Dewis 
to Decorate the Hall and Order the 
Music. Lanny was game, but the 
Student Body was not and there 
Arose Strife. Nevertheless, they Had 
One, and Charged the Sheep two 
Bones, to make up the Deficit. It is 
needless to say that both Hank Lincoln 
and Bill Saville was there. 

Not long after, our hero was asked 
by Captain Alert Main to Come Out 
For the rifle team. He told him that 
they were going to shoot with the 
University of Washington in two 
weeks, and that they needed Our 
Hero's help. A trip to the State of 
the Giant Redwood looked good to 
Eujust Watchmee, so he decided to 
make the team. Like all true heros, 
ours had no especial love for his new 
Alma Mater to tempt him, but the 
trip sure did Look Good. In our 
next, we will try to tell our Faith- 
ful Readers how the Popular Hero 
made good, or didn't as we feel.

— Editor's Note. 



It was a hot, midsummer day in 
Galveston, Texas. It was also mid- 
summer in Pelham. A jitneybus came 
racing down the street. It was racing 



with its exhaust, which was so strong 
that it insisted on getting ahead of 
the car. A passing glimpse into the 
car would have revealed Sheerluck 
Burns, or as he spelt it when dis- 
guised, Beerluck Shurns. He was 
wrapt in thought. Fortunately, he 
also had other clothes on. At a signal 
from the passenger, the jitneybus 
swerved around a corner and dashed 
down a side street. Just before a 
low-lying house next to a disreputable 
looking saloon, it stopped, the jitney, 
that is. 

Sheerluck leaped to the sidewalk, 
and with one bound was inside the 
house. Fifteen minutes later, the 
doors of the saloon opened, and an 
evil-looking tramp burst onto the 
landscape and proceeded to clean up 
the sidewalk. He was none other 
then Sheerluck Burns in disguise! 
He picked himself up and walked 
around the corner until he was away* 
from the street and outside of the 
sight of the street. Then he boarded 
the jitney once more. Just then, as 
he saw Sheerluck get in, a heavily 
built man came out of the house on 
the other side from the saloon, 
swinging a dinner pail. He was also 
disguised, because he usually carried 
his in a bag, a la hash house. The 
stranger hurried down the street, 
and just then Sheerluck comes from 
behind the corner in his rear. Wonder- 
ful Sheerluck had had presence of 
mind enough to drive around the 
block just after he left the saloon! 
Now he is in position to track the Great 
Mystery. The G. M. hastens at a 
moderate pace, down the street. 

He hurries into a book store, buys 
a copy of the "House of Seven Gables" 
and reads it through as he passes out 
of the shop. Beerluck, true to his 
name, has taken the opportunity 



"Every Blow Above the Belt" 



to stick true to his disgusted name, 
and comes out of a Life Saving 
Station just as the G. M. comes out 
of the shop. However, Sheerluck is 
wiping the back of his hand ofif with 
hisHps. The G. M. hastens down the 
street once more, with old Sheerluck 
tagging along behind. Finally, the 
former darts in the doorway of a large, 
quiet-looking house. 

Sheerluck used his ingenuity, and 
"Entered on Probation." He found 
himself in the cellar, and proceeded 
to rummage around. There were a 
number of large packing cases around 
the room. They were all addressed 
to a large company in South America. 
Sheerluck had a very great suspicion 
that they contained arms and am- 
munition, and so opened one. His 
surmise was only too true. He 
emptied it, took a ham that had 
been hanging near, and entered the 
case. He pulled the top on after 
himself, which goes to show how 
really clever he is. Not long after, 
an expressman came and hauled 
the boxes away. 

(To be continued) 
Notice: The remainder of this 
film which was taken at great expense 
in South America, will be shown in 
the near future.

Dear Light Handout: 

I am very anxious to learn how to 
dance, but I do not wish to pay any 
money for the instruction. I have 
tried dancing to street pianos and got 
along very well, I thought, until one

Militarism Rampant 

The first meeting of the Jingo Club 
was held in the Unsocial Union 
during Wednesday drill. Don Wil- 
liams, worthy President and Most 
Royal High Scazoosh, took the chair 
amid thunderous applause, during 
which the fall of a pin could have been 
heard. "The first business of the 
day," he observed as he cracked a 
hickory nut with his gavel, "is to 
vote on the following motion: 'Re- 
solved, that Senior drill be made 



compulsory, and Prof. Neal. elected 
as assistant to the Commandant'." 

There was a scuffling sound in 
the rear of the room, as Gawk Plaisted 
arose from a horizontal to an upright 
position. "Worthy President," he 
remorked in a ninety horse-power 
whisper, "I move an amendment 
reading, 'Be it further resolved that 
all men over 6 feet high be barred 
from the army, as they are too tall 
to stand in the trenches'." There 
was an approving murmur from Bud 
Fisher, Ed Hill and Husky Suther- 
land. 

After a good deal of argument the 
motion was about to be passed by a 
unanimous majority vote, when the 
well-known cheer leader, Tommy Har- 
rocks, made himself heard. "Mr. 
President," he chirped, "the time has 
come for an expression of authority. 
I protest against the tyranny of 
Senior drill, also of Junior, Sophomore 
and Freshman drill. The man who 
has lived on the firing line at the 
hash-house cannot be freezed by the 
dull splosh of a dum-dum bullet. 
The man who has survived Chem 2 
cares nothing for the stench of noxious 
gases. The man who has banquet- 
scrapped with Hagelstein will not fear 
the onrush of the Prussian grenadiers. 
The man who. ..." 

At this point the Jingo Club 
adjourned to watch a game of pinochle 
tennis, and the outcome of the 
momentous motion will never be 
known. 



Mr. Rand: Now, just get these 
fundamental ideas down in your head, 
and you'll have it all in a nutshell."

Moments at the Courses 

Agricultural Economics 
The Professor trips lightly into the 
room and navigates up to the desk. 
He spends five breathless minutes 
sorting over some papers, and looking 
for something which he seems to 
have lost. Finally he reaches up to 
scratch his head in perplexity, and 
there he finds the missing article. 
It was his hat which he had forgotten 
to remove. The Chapel bell rings. 
Five minutes later, the first stragglers 
come in. There is a murmur from 
outside: "They're always crabbing 
the course." The roll is called, six- 
teen names being answered present, and 
only fourteen in the room, unless we 
count the prof, and a picture of 

"Herve Riel." "Mr , how is 

it that the status of winter wheat 
makes an extractive industry out 
of the Appalachian Plateau?" There 
is a confused murmur in the room, 
and the victim mumbles something. 
"Very good." 

A belated traveler sneaks in. The 
prof, looks up in surprise. "I could 
not find the bulletin you sent me for, 
Professor, but she says it will pro- 
bably be in in the morning." The 
professor blinks, and nods. The 
B. T. takes a seat amidst the admir- 



ing glances of his classmates. The 
prof, covers a board with several 
columns of figures. "I have placed 
here the figures showing the distri- 
bution of the amount spent annually 
for cigarettes in the United States. 
They should total up to 
$986,549,304,235.89. Let us see if 
they do so." Five minutes work 
shows that they come out 88 cents. 
"There seems to be a difference here 
of 1 cent." He consults several papers, 
looks at the board in bewilderment, 
and rubs his bald spot. Then he 
looks through a little green book, 
and then a red one. Somebody 
asks: "Is that a '4' or an '8'?" 
He points to a figure. The professor 
tries to get his line of vision, and 
after about five minutes, the pro- 
fessor shows him that it is a "5." 

He erases half the figures, and puts 
them down again. This time, they 
come $106,549.82 out of the way. 
The prof, gasps, and takes a new hold 
on his chalk. He covers two more 
boards with figures and lines, and is 
still sweating over the sum, when the 
bell rings. He points to another 
board : 

"Over here, I have placed the 
imports of the U. S. for the last 
ten years. Kindly copy, tabulate, 
index, and compare with the exports, 
for next time." A groan goes up, 
but the prof, is back at his sum.

EDITORIAL 

June again, and time to bid adieu to another parting band of wayfarers. 
June, and the air once more punctuated with whirling canes— in company with 
flannel shirts and corduroys; once more the curses of the poor unfortunates are 
heard in the land, as their newly donned robes catch between their legs on the 
chapel stairs. tempora, mores! And meanwhile the Junior begins to assume 
a smile of tolerant dignity, and to think of delivering his cherished drill suit into 
the clutches of the nearest second-hand dealer; the Sophomore reflects with delight 
on the prospect of passing off his last dozen conditions and settling himself for 
a lazily majorful junior year; and the Freshman licks his chops and gets ready 
his warclub with anticipatory glee". 

What is to become of these Senior companions of ours, so suddenly torn 
from their accustomed Hamp? Shades of the River and Mountain! Why must 
we grow up for four years, dividing our time between Her and the pursuit of our 
dearly beloved M, only to be brought at last to the jaws of that horrible monster, 
Work? Is it indeed true that life is but an illusion and a vain thing? But stay, 
one joy remains from out the general wreck: the Dean's Board, cursed device 
of the Inquisition, will now fill "its insatiable maw with" other victims. 

Whither will these promising youths bend their steps? Alas, we know not. 
Swept up by the maelstrom of life and scattered over the face of the earth, a goodly 
number may even become useful citizens. But wherever and however they 
may fare, it is our fervent wish that they may ever remain true to the ideals they 
have held, true to the record they have held, and true to the girls they have held. 



The alumni are once more in our midst. We are glad to welcome them, 
glad to shake hands with them and, perhaps, glad to solicit contributions from 
them. It would probably do us good if we could know just what the older grads 
are thinking about us. What do they think about our Dean's Board deUnquents, 
about our pond parties, about our campus atmosphere, about our pathetic adherence 
to mildewed traditions? We trust they will be charitable, for once upon a time 
they also were students; they also were guilty of doing foolish deeds and thinking 
foolish thoughts. Cannot we be pardoned for a little folly now and then? 

Aggie is, no worse than other colleges. On the contrary, we are conceited 
enough to fancy that she is quite a bit better than the average. We are progressing, 
we are making growth, we are getting ahead. What more can the most anxious 
reformer desire? ■.

EVENTS OF 



The W«r Cry Corrie^ +o ^vvn 



THE YEAR 



Ushered in by a pack of ravening Sophomores, 170 meek and timid Freshies 
crept into view at the opening of the college year ; needless to say they were welcomed 
with enthusiasm and barrel staves. The rope pulls, the night-shirt peerade, 
the chapel picture rushes and various minor festivities occupied a great deal of 
time during the first few weeks. All this was somewhat damaging to scholarship, 
but the staid Seniors settling down into their last lap of college life, and the Juniors 
piously engaged in getting adjusted to their majors, provided a studious background 
for scenes otherwise full of carnage. 

The first gridiron battle took place on the Dartmouth terrain September 26, 
and sad to report, we were repulsed with considerable loss. The next engagement, 
however, resulted in a complete victory over Holy Cross. With various vicissitudes, 
our football team plowed through the season, and although defeats were encoun- 
tered in the final games with Tufts and Springfield, we had no cause to feel dis- 
heartened. 

At election time an item of excitement was the congressional campaign con- 
ceived, organized, and carried out by our worthy Dean. In order to foster the 
sense of humor that had hitherto been latent within the student body, an active 
Lewis Club was formed, and great was the enthusiasm thereof. Although our 
impromptu stump speakers pointed with pride and viewed with alarm, our candi- 
date received the mitten by several thousand plurality. Another case of poll evil. 

The hockey season resulted in an even break for Aggie, that is to say, an 
even break in the games, not in the ice. Although the schedule included Harvard, 
Yale, Princeton, Dartmouth and other colleges of the first rank, we came out 
with no fewer than five victories, and no more than five defeats. 

On Lincoln's birthday an event occurred which interested quite a number 
of students. This event was the Junior Prom— a brilliant function quite out- 
stripping all previous records in the matter of low gowns and high expenses, early 
headaches and late hours.

Financial matters received attention in the early spring. The student body 
pledged an additional thousand dollars to the athletic field, and some of this 
was collected. An attempt was made to pledge the legislature for a five years' 
appropriation of a million dollars. $77,000 of this was collected. 



THE WAR CRY 







After considerable clamor from the student body, 
and a few remarks from the faculty, it was finally 
decided to give the far-famed and ill-famed banquet 
season another chance for its life. Against vivacious 
opposition, the Freshmen succeeded in holding their 
banquet, but rules were broken on both sides, and it 
is possible that next year the custom will go to take 
its place by the side of the abolished arena party. 



Qur baseball team, which began the season with much promise, has rolled 
up a record of several brilliant victories, and several brilliant defeats. In interclass 
athletics we have made considerable progress during the year. Baskethall, track, 
cross country and tennis have each received attention, and the annual Freshman- 
Sophomore contests in football and hockey passed off with great eclat. The 
interfratemity baseball games are a highly encouraging phase of our college athletics. 

In the development of non-athletic activities we have surpassed any previous 
year. The Roister Bolsters, presenting the Broadway comedy, "Her Husband's 
Wife," made a successful tour of New Jersey and southern New York, besides 
giving several performances in this neighborhood. A culminating effort is the 
musical comedy; when will there be such another? The combined musical clubs 
made a Boston trip during Christmas vacation, and at Easter performed before 
gaping (no, we don't mean yawning) audiences in the rustic sections of New 
Jersey. Shortly after their engagement in Paterson, Billy Sunday was summoned 
to that city. We do not, however, think there was any connection between these 
two events. 

It has been a busy year, a year of progress, a year of attainment. The 
watchword of "Leadership" has incited us to strive for high ideals, and let it 
be recorded that our striving has not been wholly in vain.

THE WAR CRY 



HISTORY OF THE FOUR YEAR SENTENCE OF 1915 

Our diet: 

1911-12 Water 
1912-13 Milk 
1913-14 Tea and Coffee 
1914-15 Other Beverages 

This is the Hquid diet that most of us have followed during our four years 
at college. There is a bare possibility that some may have included "other bever- 
ages" (such as Horlick's Malted, etc.) throughout their other years. But the 
fact remains that despite all hindrances we have attained to that august state 
known as Seniorhood, and our progress reads not unlike a Nick Carter romance, 
"From Highwayman to Chief of Police in a Year." 

As Freshm.en we did not take the "water diet" voluntarily. It was forced 
on us, under protest. The Ponce de Leon of the 1915 Invaders was "Hank" 
Lincoln, who, to the delight of the savage Fourteeners, was the first to bathe in 
the Fountain of Youth. A number of others followed sait, including "Kippy" 
Goodwin, the Newburyport wonder, who insisted on giving an exhibition of how 
he used to dive for clams with his teeth. To this day "Harrol" McLain can't 
understand why the 1914 men thought so much of him as to invite him around 
to their exclusive bath. He never did any more than smoke on the campus, 
laugh loudly at inopportune times, and tell a few upperclassmen to go to the 
place where they don't have to shovel snow in winter. There were others of 
our embryo class who were capsized in the sewer, but the first three are excellent 
examples. 

Although the college colors are maroon and white and our class colors are 
brown and white, nevertheless it was thought desirable to continually remind 
us of a certain bilious tint known as pea-green. As special guests of ' 14 we marched 

tl^rough the town shrieking "Green, pea-green, we're green," just as though 

anyone, except green Freshmen, would allow themselves to be driven about clad 
in pajamas. 

While we were not allowed to smoke during our first year, nevertheless we 
learned to "pull on the rope." The rope was not in the form of a Sunderland 
cigar: it was an object of contention between the Sophomores and ourselves, and 
while at the beginning of the struggle we were on opposite sides of the college 
pond, at its conclusion we were all on the same side. Needless to say, we yanked 
through the Sophs like wet clothes through a wringer. The pond has been in 
a more or less besmooched condition ever since. 

On May 3, 1912, the peaceful town of Amherst was awakened by a riot call. 
In Europe they term it war, but we call it "the Banquet Season." After starving 
at the hash-house for almost a year, we wanted to have an honest and truly meal 
in the form of a class banquet. Our same old guardians, the Sophomores, were 
insistent that our class officers should remain at home to grace the campus. But 
after a beautiful and spectacular Grand March through Amherst (somewhat 
different from the Grand March commonly indulged in at the Soph-Senior Hop) 
we made a successful getaway to Boston. 

After the festivities, we returned to Amherst for finals and Commencement. 
At midyears we had lost some of our comrades whom the faculty thought were 
too frail to continue such a course as the Toboggan Shute of Old Aggie. A few 
more were clipped off in June, but notwithstanding the importunities of "Billy," 
our favorite Prof., a goodly number were permitted to remain. In our first 
attempt at the inter-class sing we came out a close fourth. 



THE WAR CRY 



It is singular how three short summer months can make such a difference 
in a college man's life. We came back to Aggie, transformed from poor humble 
subjects into bold tyrants. Like any other Sophomore class, we owned the college. 
We were willing to receive a few such men as Prexy and "Pop" Hart on an equal 
footing, but we considered ourselves monarchs of all we surveyed. 

In bringing up the infant Freshmen we found we had a pretty disobedient 
and difficult crowd to handle. Not only that, but there were too many six foot 
"shorties" and German submarines, such as Schlotterbeck and Verbeck, opposing 
us. In a close game (everything was close except the score) we were trimmed in 
football by the Frosh, and the same sad story holds true with regard to basketball. 
The sixty man rope-pull was a regular six-day race affair, lasting longer than 
any in the history of the college. We pulled our durndest, having been told 
by the Juniors that a couple kegs of beer were on the other end of the rope— 
we were just ferocious enough to want to escape from that milk diet. 

As Sophomores we were all more or less afflicted with night-mares, in which 
hideous paramoecia, laws of gravitation, and assorted F. O. B. Amherst fertilizers 
figured largely. In the second semester we became nature-struck, roaming ever 
hither and yon in search of botanic specimens. Some of us accumulated lovely 
herbaria, including many rare specimens of rubber plants, flowers of sulphur, etc. 

"To be or not to be, that is the question" we answered with regard to Whether 
or not Charley Gould should be present at the Freshman banquet. So undecided 
(?) were we that we sent four delegates down to Brookline, Mass., to ask little 
Charley out for an airing in a nice automobile. Now, if we had sent a Ford with 
which to escort Mr. Gould back to Amherst, he might have had some cause to 
kick, but why he should have objected to a nice six-cylinder jitney bus is more 
than we can imagine. After coming all the way back to Amherst, Charley told 
us he objected because he was supposed to preside over the Freshman Goulash 
Feed in Boston. So overcome were we by this terrible news, that we broke down 
with hoarse moans. 

At Commencement we climbed up the ladder a peg by tying '14 for booby 
prize in the class sing. Just to show there were no hard feelings, we finished a 
glorious year by winning the class ball game. The milk was beginning to curdle, 
so we left off the lacteal diet and— 

Came back to sip our coffee and tea as jolly Juniors. Our class affairs were 
of a less strenuous nature than previously. We had no one to hamper us, for 
'16 was busy trying to "purloin the child '17." We, the ever faithful "nurse 
girls of little '17," tried to protect them, teaching them to "sic" the Sophs and 
raise hinky-dee generally. It was in our Junior year that we started to specialize. 
Some of us are just finding out that we were meant for something different than 
what our majors would seem to indicate; time will tell, however. We remember 
our Junior year particularly for its wonderful prom. It is hard to forget a thing 
like that, though we would like to forget the debts which accompanied it. 

When we regretfully left the company ranks at the close of our soldiering 
period, we were the last of the blue-coats. Since our uniforms could not be sold 
to the incoming Frosh, together with the radiators, chapel hymn books, etc. that 
are annually disposed of at a price, we made merry by burning the uniforms in 
one stupendous funeral pyre. In the class sing it was rumored that we took 
second rank, thus proving conclusively that Tetrazzinni's aren't made in a year. 

And now, after four notable years, we stand at the parting of the ways. The 
past few months we have behaved as Seniors should, not overworking ourselves 
except when it was rumored that somewhere there was a job to be given out. 
This is our only cause for worry— a job. We have acted at times almost dignified, 
and now we leave the "other beverages" of our Aggie diet, to taste the bitter 
fluids that the cold, cold world has to offer.

If the Prof, looks grim when you speak to him, 
And then smiles like a bald-headed seraphim; 
If he sputters and stews like a dynamite fuse 

And tries to think how to break the news 

You've flunked, by Gad, you've flunked.

"What points are desired in a cow?" 
"A cow should be of the female sex." 
"In judging a cow, how do you tell her breed?" 
"I generally speak it right out." 
"What foods make for milk production?" 
"Milk weed and cream of wheat." 
"But what does a dealer feed his cows?" 
"Milk weed and water cress." 
That will do, you may go to the head of the class." 



As the innocent bystander was bystanding around, half a dozen masked men 
jumped upon him and began to beat him up. 

"Help! Help!" screeched the I. B. "What are you trying to do to me?" 

"Rob you!" snarled the leader of the thugs. 

The LB. breathed a sigh of relief. "Thank God! I thought you were going 
to give me a college initiation." 

TO THE FIELD 

Beneath the team we've got a field 

For which we've had to pay: 
And all we need thereon's the fence 

We hope to have some day. 
Within the various dorms tonight 

We'll gather as of yore, 
For many 9, week will pass until 
, . r, We see old Hamp once more.

"Open up your pocketbook, hand us out your kale; 
Defend your rep and show some pep, for we are on your trail; 
You have aided us before, and now we cry 'Encore!' 
Open up your pocketbook and put across some more — " 
For then we'll feel so gay, we'll bellow and we'll bray 
Mass-a-chusetts (!!) for-ever-more. 




FOND IMAGININGS 

I long to be a Senior, 

And with the Seniors stand, _ 
A mortar-board upon my head 

And a cudgel in my hand. 
I'd sally from these ivied walls 

And strut about serene; 
If anyone should give me pause 

I'd- swat him o'er the bean. 
For a Senior's life is jolly. 

And a Senior's life is gay; 
If he wants a job — why, he asks for it. 

And he gets it right away.

MOMENTS AT THE COURSES 

Sociology 

"Where's the Prof. ?" is the general outcry as the bell rings and the professor's 
chair still remains vacant. 

"Yea, he's handing us a bolt!" some one remarks regretfully. Although 
loth to leave a scene hallowed with- so many hours of pleasant slumber, the class 
rises as one man and surges toward the door. At this critical moment, however, 
the Prof, suddenly appears and stems the tide of departing students. 

Amid general congratulations at the escape from so painful an adventure 
as a bolt, the class settles down to fifty minutes of congealed enjoyment. As is 
customary in opening a lecture, the Prof, spends some time fumbling around 
among a vast assortment of papers; during this ceremiony the class regales itself 
by singing "I didn't raise my Ford to be a Jitney," and similar pathetic ballads. 

And now, the usual preliminaries being concluded, the Prof, clears his throat 
with a noise resembling the raucous crunch of a pumpkin scraper, and addressing 

an imaginary audience in the rear seats he croaks: "Ah, er, let me see " 

The class leans forward in rapt attention. "Oh, er— r, let me see " (Sotto 

voce: "Well, who's stoppin' yer?) 

"Ah, to be sure Er— r, was not this the day appointed for a test?" Good 

God! He had remembered his previous assignment of a quiz! 

Some one remarks in a shocked_j,voice : "Why, we ain't goin' to have a quiz 
today, are we ?" - 

The professor consults his notebook, and then minutely examines a calendar. 
"Why, er— r, y— yes! We are scheduled for a test, er— r, on the natives of the 
Sandwich Islands." There is a militant chorus of groans. 

"Aw, I thought it was on the Hot Dog Islands." 

"Whaddaye mean, a test today?" 

"We ain't heard nothin' about a test!" 

"Let's have it next week." 

The Prof, looks perplexed. After running through a book on etiquette, 
he wheezes: "Very well, then, we'll take a vote on it. How, many want a test 
today?" One hand is raised, but the traitor is immediately garrbted by his nearest 
neighbors. ,■ 

. "How many want it next Monday?" Loud cries of assent. General enthu- 
siasm. /'^ I 

"Ah, er— r, er— r, very good. We'll have a test on Monday on er— r 

what was the subject? Oh yes, to be sure, on the habits of primitive man, with 
special regard to his frontal development and, er— r, to the evolution of his holo- 
photal pamphiliatic superconsciousness." 

But the class is undismayed. The Prof, has forgotten that Monday is a 
holiday. 



TMC VW^AR CRY 



CHEMISTRY AS IT IS MONOLOGUED 

Scene: Our new 1870 model Chem. Lab. 
Time: Spring, fall, or winter. 

Characiers: One full throated baritone Professor ; fifty supernumeraries in lecture seats. 

"Naow, you take this here stuff over yonder and douse it in cold water; ye 

want to wash it good and plenty, see ? Naow, let -mfr tell you what this experiment 

shows: it shows that hydration occurs after hydrolysis, and that chabazite is 

a by-product in making basic slag or is it the other way 'round ? Well, anyhow, 

when you get this here solution you wanter filter it through charcoal (Hi, you 
boys up thar who are talking, you better watch out!) so you take it and add some 

ammonia into it let's see naow, what's the reaction here? Well, I callate 

I don't recomember it, but you can look it up in thfe book. (I say, you fellers 
up thar, if you don't stop talking you'll get it in the gizzard sure as preaching.) 

So then you filter the solution, just like this it's nigh impossible to get it started, 

but once she gets a-going she goes like forty. I tried this experiment daown 

in Texas and she worked first rate, but you can't most always tell there, I 

swan, she didn't work, but we'll try her again. Naow, you fellers wanter watch 

this pretty clus, for you'll like as not get it in the next quiz 1 vow, she didn't 

work that time either well, you see how 'twould be if she did work. I reckon 

that's all for this morning, fellers." -
